Some People Give Until It HurtsI found a new beautician and we hit it off, we both have medical problems.
Then she started telling me about the charity program that her church operates
. All people have to do is come in and sign up for help with their rent or food or
whatever they need. They don't even have to be members of their church.
She came back from a delivery of food , "I think there is a problem with
the program. These people have a new car, and they have money for their cigarettes, the kids have a lot nicer cell phone than me and when I arrived, no one even offered to help, I carried in the food all by myself." The preacher told her, "We must not judge others."
I told her it is good to share with the truly needy, but doesn't the Bible say, "If
anyone does not want to work, neither let him eat? She agreed that it should say that. At least she motivated me to look it up so I could share what the Bible says about it. The last chapter of 2nd Thessalonians covers that subject.
