What does the Bible say about lending a helping hand? Here are a few scriptures to encourage you to bless your fellow man:

Matthew 25:40 (KJV) – And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Proverbs 28:27 (KJV) – He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.

Galatians 6:2 (MSG) – Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and so complete Christ’s law.

1 John 3:17 (TLB) – But if someone who is supposed to be a Christian has money enough to live well, and sees a brother in need, and won’t help him—how can God’s love be within him?

Deuteronomy 15:11 (KJV) – For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.
