Not Providing For Your Family

But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

[1Timothy 5:8]
Some people are Father Christmas in town but armstrong at home. They have more than enough to eat and to spare. However, they prefer to help people elsewhere than their immediate family.


Others will rather give at church and to the pastor than provide for their own family members. It doesn’t matter how many gallons of anointing oil that are poured on your head and the prophetic declarations pronounced;  it’s just a waste of time and resources. 

There are times that we have to deny ourselves and family in order to sow some seeds for an expected future harvest. I believe there’s nothing wrong with that. However, where we’re constantly refusing or failing to provide for our own people around us, it calls for concerns.

Some of us have rich parents who don’t need our help financially or materially. Bless God for that.  Some too have parents who need our money to survive. It’s a sin to deny them the little help we can give to help alleviate their plight. Incidentally, our parents don’t need much to live comfortably; especially those in the rural areas.

To refuse to help our immediate family, while spreading others in town or giving fat offerings in church and for charity work is to invert the divine order. No wonders, some have given and given without having any results to show for it.

Let’s be wise. No more sacrifices of fools in the Name of Jesus. Amen
