Poverty through the Bible

If you were to spend a year attending the average evangelical congregation in the States for a full year, how many of the weekly sermons would be on the poor and poverty? If we're lucky, the pastor might manage to fit it into another sermon here or there, especially around Thanksgiving time.

But there are over 2000 passages in the Bible on the poor and on poverty. If a pastor were to teach on one of these passages every week, it would take over 30 years to get through the them all (closer to 40 years).
