Matthew 5:3; Matthew 11:5; Matthew 19:21; Matthew 26:11
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
The blind receive their sight , and the lame walk , the lepers are cleansed , and the deaf hear , the dead are raised up , and the poor have the gospel preached to them .
Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast , and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.
