The hand of the diligent will rule, But the lazy man will be put to forced labor (Proverbs 12:24, NKJV). It is a shame that there are many in society who look for a handout rather than working as they should. The Scriptures are clear that if one won’t work, that same one should not eat (2 Thessalonians 3). Yet people in society, having a false sense of compassion, would rather give someone a “fish” than teach them how to provide for themselves. Those who receive the “fish” are totally unaware they are slaves to those who give. RT
