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.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
