In life one thing that will never change is the huge number of people living in poverty. As Christians we must give all we can to the poor and never close our eyes to their cries. Closing our eyes to the poor is like doing it to Jesus, who was poor Himself. We must also never jump to conclusions on how someone became poor. Scripture has a lot to say about poverty. Better is a little with righteousness.
There are people who will starve to death today. There are people who have to eat mud pies daily. As Christians we are to feed the poor and help people who are in need. Feeding the needy is part of serving one another and as we serve others we are serving Christ. When you go to the store and you happen to see a homeless man why not buy him something to eat?
Matthew - For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Isaiah - And [if] thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness [be] as the noonday: James - What [doth it] profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works?

If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, so that you will not come together for judgment The remaining matters I will arrange when I come. He who is generous will be blessed, For he gives some of his food to the poor. For He has satisfied the thirsty soul, And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good. And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh. And if you give yourself to the hungry And satisfy the desire of the afflicted, Then your light will rise in darkness And your gloom will become like midday. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need.
God cares about the poor and we are to care as well. We must stop thinking about self and think about others in need. We are commanded to help the poor with a cheerful heart, not with a grudging one. When you serve the poor you are not only serving them you are serving Christ as well. God will not forget your blessing to others. Serve the poor expecting nothing in return.
