…Are you enabling a dysfunctional person?
…2Thes 3:10 “…If a man will not work, he shall not eat.’” 
…Those of us who are followers of Jesus are called to show compassion by helping meet the needs of the less fortunate. We are not called to enable those who are lazy. Unfortunately, many people in our culture today have developed the mentality that they don’t need to work, even when they can. It is just as wrong for us to give them a handout to keep them from working as it is for us to refuse to care for those who cannot work. We are enabling the person who refuses to work to continue a dysfunctional lifestyle. Have you been contributing to the chronic laziness of someone by continuing to give them hand outs? Set them free today to find their life’s work and their dignity. They just may thank you someday for helping them find the purpose for which God created them.
