Biblical References

Deuteronomy 15:11 English Standard Version (ESV)

11For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, 'You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.'

James 2:15-17

If a brother or sister lacks food and one of you says, "go in peace," and yet do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that?  Faith if it has no works is dead.
