Dr. Jim Denison: Joe Hollins and his wife were camped near the home of Phoenix mother Claudia Jimenez when she woke up to find flames devouring her apartment.

After he caught them, he caught her two dogs and finally Claudia herself.
She said later, “Because of him we’re here, we’re alive and my daughters are safe.”

Got Questions states: God expects His people to help those who are homeless. The Law directly addressed care for those in need. In Leviticus 25:35 God commands His people to help support those who have no home and cannot support themselves: “If any of your fellow Israelites become poor and are unable to support themselves among you, help them as you would a foreigner and stranger, so they can continue to live among you” (see also Deuteronomy 15:7–11). The Lord rebuked those who kept the outward form of religion yet did not care for the poor: “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: . . . to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?” (Isaiah 58:6–7).
