"There shall be no needy among you…If there is among you a needy person, one of your brethren, within any of your cities, in your land which Adonai your God gives you, you shall not harden your heart, nor shut your hand from your needy sibling; but you shall surely open your hand, shall surely lend sufficient for this one’s need…For the poor will never cease from the land. For this reason, God commands you, saying, “You shall surely open your hand to your siblings, to the poor and needy in your land."

— Deuteronomy 15:4-12 (via revnaomiking)
