Are They Shooting Themselves in the Foot?

HARD WORK

People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,  treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. 2 Timothy 3:2-5New International Version

Recently I was talking with a volunteer at a soup kitchen about people arriving early and demanding the doors be open before it is ready, people eating half their plates of food, people coming in drunk, children running around screaming and parents laughing about it.

 

Then there was on news how many churches are closing their doors for soup kitchens and the homeless because they do not feel safe.

 

Are they shooting themselves in the foot and then cry babying because they are so disadvantaged?

They believe welfare is their right and are too lazy to go out and get a job?

Supporting them is unchristlike.

For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10New King James Version

When I was volunteering at soup kitchens and offered them work they would laugh and say : “That is what you people do to pay for my welfare.”

Are these people shooting themselves in the foot?

Instead of cry babying about how disadvantaged they are why not try to get a job and be respectful of the people trying to help you?

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for always providing for me on the condition that I do my part and put forth the effort as well. I praise you in the name of He who did Your work all the way o the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah
