You have been a refuge for the poor,
a refuge for the needy in their distress,
a shelter from the storm
and a shade from the heat.
For the breath of the ruthless
is like a storm driving against a wall
and like the heat of the desert.
You silence the uproar of foreigners;
as heat is reduced by the shadow of a cloud,
so the song of the ruthless is stilled. — Isaiah 25:4-5.
So much of both the New and Old testament is about the poor and needy. Why is that? Perhaps like the proverbial mule the writers are trying to smack us over the head with a two by four? The care of the poor, homeless, and sick is our obligation, and to shirk it or say they deserve their plight is dead ass wrong.
As opposed to an afterthought we should prioritize their care. We should be the shade that comforts the poor and needy from the unbearable heat of their circumstances.
