Learn the basics about poverty in the United States.

"Beware of practicing your piety before others in order to be seen by them; for then you have no reward from your Father in heaven . . . But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your alms may be done in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you." (Matthew 6:1-4)
