reason to reach out to poor

Have you noticed that God doesn't ask you to prove that you will put your salary to good use? Have you noticed that God doesn't turn off your oxygen supply when you misuse His gifts? Aren't you glad that God doesn't give you only that which you remember to thank him for?
God's goodness is spurred by His nature, not by our worthiness.
Someone asked an associate of mine, 'What biblical precedent do we have to help the poor who have no desire to become Christians?'
My friend responded with one word, 'God.'
God does it daily, for millions of people.
