It takes compassion and good character to help the poor. However, to care for the poor can be overwhelming and not easy. In a biblical point of view, helping the poor provides us a practical chance to worship the Big Provider above. Every person has unique ways to express their concern and help the poor. Poverty can come from a spiritual problem. Though we cannot totally eliminate it for ourselves and our fellowmen, we can at least minister to those who need our help and give a part of our time and resources while we are still here.
