The Bible Says
The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.
Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
1 John 3:17-18
If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
1 Timothy 6:18
Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
1 Peter 2:12
Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.
