They Care for Their Own...

But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.  1 Timothy, Chapter 5, verse 8.

I remember hearing this over the years, “They take care of their own.”  Well, God is telling us this is exactly what we are supposed to do.  There is a big difference between empowering and enabling, though.  So, our help should be supportive in a way that maintains the person’s self-respect, encouraging them always to make positive choices in their lives.

Because this is an example of how I’ve applied this Bible passage to my life, it doesn't necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the passage.

This is a connection I've made from this Bible passage. Please share your connections.
