Exodus 22 NIV 25-27 "If you lend
money to one of My people
among you who is needy, do not
be like a moneylender; charge
him no interest. If you take your
neighbor's cloak as a pledge,
return it to him by sunset,
because his cloak is the only
covering he has for his body.
What else will he sleep in? When
he cries out to Me, I will hear,
for I am compassionate.
2 Thessalonians 3 10 For even when we were with
you, this we commanded you, that if any would not
work, neither should he eat. 11 For we hear that
there are some which walk among you disorderly,
working not at all, but are busybodies. 12 Now them
that are such we command and exhort by our Lord
Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat
their own bread. 13 But ye, brethren, be not weary
in well doing. Balance
People who won’t work have responsibility.
But we are to help the truly needy.

Glad at calamities
Proverbs 24 17-18 Rejoice not when thine enemy
falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he
stumbleth: Lest the LORD see it, and it displease
Him, and He turn away His wrath from him.
Have compassion on those who have trouble;
Even your enemies.
Glad at calamities
Someone else who might be glad at calamities is
one who will make money off of trouble.
6a Children's children are the crown of old men;
This Proverb assumes that the children and
grandchildren are living life God’s Way.
If they have turned their backs on God, living
rebelliously and stubbornly going their own way,
then they bring shame upon their family.
And upon God!
6b and the glory of children are their fathers.
Children should be able to be proud of their
parents and thankful for their example.
It is so very sad when that is not the case.
Ephesians 6 1 Children, obey your parents in the
Lord: for this is right. 2 Honor (revere, value) thy
father and mother; (which is the first command-
ment with promise;) 3 That it may be well with
thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
Be a parent that can be honored.
Disrespect for parents has become
the norm in our culture.
And it is encouraged by many in authority.
Secret abortions for under -16s by ZOE Bolton,
Mail online: Girls younger than 16 will still be
allowed to have abortions without their parents'
consent, under new guidelines issued by the
Department of Health. The move comes despite public
outrage over the case of Melissa Smith - the 14-year-
old pupil who had a secret termination after speaking
to a school health worker. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-
Ephesians 6 4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your
children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture
and admonition of the Lord.
Deuteronomy 6 6-7 And these words, which I
command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy
children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in
thine house, and when thou walkest by the way,
and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
Parents must be godly parents.
7 Excellent speech becometh not a fool: much less
do lying lips a prince.

We are sons and daughters of The Most
High God; behave as what you are.
8 A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that
hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.
Those who set their hearts upon money, will do any
thing for it. What influence should the gifts of God
have on our hearts!
Matthew Henry Concise Bible Commentary.
John 3 16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His
only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him
should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God
sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world;
but that the world through Him might be saved.
