The Word of God says: “ Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” (James 1:27)
Proverbs 19:17 says: “Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord,
and he will reward them for what they have done.”
The story of the Lord Jesus about a good Samaritan who helped the man who was robbed in the middle of the road, shows how important we should be good for others who need help without looking their background and any differences.
On the last day, Bible says, God will judge everyone according their deeds to others. For our deeds to others are like unto God.
“For when I am hungry, you feed me;
When I am thirsty, you give me a drink;
When I am a stranger, you give me a lift;
When I’m naked, you give me clothes;
When I am sick, you look after me;
When I’m in prison, you visit me.
(Matthew 25: 35-36)
This is what we must do, do good to the needy and help them.
