What if someone in your church says, “We are helping him? Why, he’s not so bad off!” Here is a guiding idea. Jonathan Edwards applies the principle “love your neighbor as yourself” to this question. You don’t wait until you are absolutely destitute before you do something to change your condition; so then you shouldn’t help only the absolutely destitute people around you. Don’t be too narrow in your definition of “the poor.”” – Tim Keller in Center Church
