There's a lot of poor people in the world. And there's a lot of the rest of us that don't think of ourselves as being all that rich. Paul told the Corinthians that they were supposed to give gifts relative to what they had. "It's only fair that those of you that have anything should be willing to share it," he said.
The Book of Discipline ¶ 122. The Process for Carrying Out Our Mission-We make disciples as we:
Proclaim the gospel, seek, welcome and gather persons into the body of Christ;
Lead persons to commit their lives to God through baptism by water and the spirit and profession of faith in Jesus Christ;
Nurture persons in Christian living through worship, the sacraments, spiritual disciplines, and other means of grace, such as Wesley's Christian conferencing;
Send persons into the world to live lovingly and justly as servants of Christ by healing the sick, feeding the hungry, caring for the stranger, freeing the oppressed, being and becoming a compassionate, caring presence, and working to develop social structures that are consistent with the gospel; and
Continue the mission of seeking, welcoming and gathering persons into the community of the body of Christ.
