"If there is a poor man among you, one of your brothers, in any of the towns of the land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart, nor close your hand to your poor brother; but you shall freely open your hand to him, and generously lend him sufficient for his need in whatever he lacks" (Deuteronomy 15:7, NAS).
Homelessness is not a new problem. Throughout Scripture we are reminded to care for the needs of the poor. The church, motivated by genuine love, is the natural body to address homelessness. While most people experiencing homelessness are sheltered, nearly four in 10 are living on the street, in a car or in another place not intended for human habitation, according to the National Alliance to End Homelessness. As you meet the considerable needs of the homeless, never forget that need for Christ.
