“He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets prisoners free, gives sight to the blind, and lifts up those who are bowed down... The Lord watches over the alien and sustains the fatherless and the widow.”
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed."
– Luke 4:18
“What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, ‘Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,’ but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” –James 2:14-17
“Keep on loving each other as brothers. Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”
