1 Timothy 5:3 The Church’s Ministry to Widows I

While the presidential candidates spar about one policy or another, today I want to talk about welfare reform or rather, Welfare as God intended it. Redistribution of wealth through the federal government is not God’s plan for taking care of those in need. God’s intent from the beginning is that God’s people take care of those who cannot take care of themselves. Those who are capable of taking care of themselves should continue to do so for as long as they are able. Please turn to and prepare to read 1 Timothy 5:3-16 where we will be focusing today on verses 3-8 which describes this church’s requirement to care for widows. (Read it)
