When instructing us to feed the poor, Bible authors call on us to be compassionate and generous. What guidance does the Bible give us on how to do this?
The Bible contains a lot of guidance on how to help and feed the poor with compassion.
Here are some instances in the Bible where we’re called to feed the poor:
When guiding us to feed the poor, Bible writers encourage us to support “the least of these.”
For many years, GFA World has focused on ending malnutrition and implementing community-wide solutions against poverty through our child sponsorship program. This not only meets a large need for a hungry child, but it also strengthens families and communities.
We also provide nutritional assistance for others, including our ministry for leprosy patients called Reaching Friends Ministry. Over 1226 leprosy colonies in Asia are supported through this important ministry.
In Asia, widows are often thought of as cursed and are rejected by neighbors and family members. A woman suddenly becomes alone and is instantly expected to be the sole provider for all her children. One of the most effective ways to help widows is to train them in an income-generating skill like tailoring. At GFA, our widows’ ministry provides compassion, comfort and tangible help to widows.
