Several years ago I bumped into an old friend at a funeral home visit. I knew he had a reputation for being lazy and living off his girlfriend’s parents. So I asked him, “Where are you working now?” He replied that he wasn’t working anywhere at the time, he was “waiting on my disability.”

There are four ways you can go after money in this life:
1. Borrow it
2. Beg for it
3. Steal it
4. Earn it

The word “earn” is defined as to introduce something new into existence and to harvest the yield that it produces. When you go to work eight hours a day, forty hours a week, you harvest a paycheck for your time and labor. That is God’s law of sowing and reaping in operation.

Conversely, the welfare system gives a man his food and money without his having to work for it. God’s way is to develop His wisdom in your life so that you will always have the ability to earn money, even if the government system fails.

There should always be provision from the masses for those who cannot work, but if a man hasn’t earned it, he loses self respect and becomes dependent upon others instead of God. Agree or disagree? Is there another side to this?

I couldn’t agree more. Another thing to add is that before the government began handing money out to people, people came to the church for help. I’m sure that brought a lot of people to the church who wouldn’t have come otherwise. Almost seems like it’s possible that Satan could be at work here.
