Take Care of UR Own!

“…anyone who does not look after his own relations, especially if they are living with him, has rejected the faith and is worse than an unbeliever…” 1 Tim 5:8 NJB, italics and emphasis mine

With all due respect to ministers on the telly who keep on urging the general public to send them money (even from credit cards—go in debt to support the ministry, mmmh) I believe that as believers, our first and foremost care responsibility is our family and second the local church/ministry in which we are planted.

Apostle Paul, instructing Timothy about the social welfare of the widows, makes it clear that our priority starts in our own-blood related-family then extended to the church-Christians. If one fails his family, he’s worse than unbeliever; i.e. the offerings, prayers and faith become futile simply for not caring of own family.
