1 Timothy 5:8 


But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.




Paul cited a commonly recognized responsibility to encourage the relatives of widows to maintain them. Family members have a universally recognized duty to care for one another. Even unbelievers acknowledge . If a Christian fails here, he behaves contrary to the

teaching of his faith” and is, in this particular, “worse” than the typical “unbeliever” who helps his needy relations. Even as He hung on the cross, the Lord Jesus made provision for His mother’s care.


The Christian who falls below the best heathen standard of family affection is the more blameworthy, since he has, what the heathen has not, the supreme example of love in

Jesus Christ.


Jesus called His disciples to be willing to give up the pleasures of family life to follow Him, not the responsibilities of family life. The care of family members is one of our ministry responsibilities.


Memory Verse: Job 29:18


Nothing can bring a real sense of security into the home except true love
