"If there is among you anyone in need, a member of your community in any of your towns within the land that the Lord your God is giving you, do not be hard-hearted or tight-fisted toward your needy neighbor. You should rather open your hand, willingly lending enough to meet the need, whatever it may be."Deuteronomy 15:7-8
And that seems to be something that was said in a variety of ways in both the OLD and NEW testaments. Lest there be any confusion.
