A commitment to doing justice on behalf of the poor and vulnerable runs like a thread throughout the entire biblical narrative. We see God’s concern for the poor in the gleaning laws of Torah, the sharp rebukes in the prophets, and the ministry of Jesus. We see that this priority is to be continually upheld in the local church when the Apostles give specific instructions to Paul and Barnabus “to remember the poor” (Galatians 2:10). God has a heart for the powerless and expects His people to reflect this throughout their life and mission. A strong church is actively ministering to the poor and vulnerable in their community.
