“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." (Matt 25:40 – NIV)
The Early Church when they provided help for those affected by a Judean famine -
“The disciples, as each one was able, decided to provide help for the brothers and sisters living in Judea.” (Acts 11:29 – NIV)
