Did Jesus give us any Bible passages about poverty?
During His time here on earth, Jesus spoke much about money and caring for the poor. He gave us many Bible passages about poverty. Here is a sampling:
In Isaiah 61, the prophet spoke these words, and seven centuries later, Jesus opened the scroll and applied the message to Himself. He would be the one to provide salvation to the poor. It is His gift that provides salvation for our souls.
This next passage is in the context of Jesus sharing parables—a short story where Jesus spoke spiritual truths. In this parable, Jesus is talking about an inheritance received by the righteous in the end times.
What was Jesus’ view of money? He held generous people in high regard. This is a great example of how God uses and blesses even the smallest gift in mighty ways.
