Some people have wrong beliefs about who should give. They believe some particular set of people are meant to give and they expect only them to give. They expect people who are older or richer than them or have gone ahead of them in life or business to give to them and they are not meant to give to such people. Every man is meant to give; old or young, rich or poor. Giving is not for some particular kinds of people. As long as you are in the right position to give you should give. Though no man is obligated to give because G.o.d who created man has created him with a choice, but you have to make the right choice. It is your choice to give or not. G.o.d wants you to give but you have to choose to follow him.

Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?' And the king will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me'."

Should the rich give?

The rich are to give and help others who are in need. What is the essence of having lots of money and can't use it to bless or help people around you. The reason G.o.d blessed you is for you to be a blessing to people.

"As for the rich in the world, charge them not to be haughty, nor set their hopes on uncertain riches but on G.o.d who richly furnishes us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good deeds, liberal and generous, thus laying up for themselves a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life which is life indeed." - II Tim.6:17-19

The reason for your riches and wealth is to do good deeds, be generous and help people who are in need to get eternal rewards.
