The 3rd P of our Profession is Providing for people in need.
(1Ti 5:8) But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially his family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an infidel.
(Gal 6:9-10) “Let us not get tired of doing what is good, for at the right time we will reap a harvest-if we do not give up. (10) So then, whenever we have the opportunity, let us practice doing good to everyone, especially to the family of faith.”
( Mat 25:31-43) “ "When the Son of Man comes in his glory and all the angels are with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. (32) All the nations will be assembled in front of him, and he will separate them from each other as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. (33) He will put the sheep on his right but the goats on his left. (34) "Then the king will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. (35) For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger, and you welcomed me. (36) I was not dressed, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you took care of me. I was in prison, and you visited me.' (37) "Then the righteous will say to him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and give you something to eat, or thirsty and give you something to drink? (38) When did we see you as a stranger and welcome you, or not dressed and clothe you? (39) When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?' (40) The king will answer them, 'Truly I tell you, in that you did it for one of the least important of these my brothers, you did it for me.' (41) "Then he will say to those on his left, 'Get away from me, you who are accursed, into the eternal fire that has been prepared for the devil and his angels! (42) For I was hungry, and you gave me nothing to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me nothing to drink. (43) I was a stranger, and you didn't welcome me. I was not dressed, and you didn't clothe me. I was sick and in prison, and you didn't visit me.'”
(Jam 1:27) “A religion that is pure and stainless in the sight of God the Father is this: to take care of orphans and widows in their suffering, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.”
What about bums?
(2Th 3:10-15) While we were with you, we gave this order: "If anyone doesn't want to work, he shouldn't eat." (11) We hear that some of you are living in idleness. You are not busy working --- you are busy interfering in other people's lives! (12) We order and encourage such people by the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living. (13) Brothers, do not get tired of doing what is right. (14) If anyone does not obey what we say in this letter, take note of him. Have nothing to do with him so that he will feel ashamed. (15) Yet, don't treat him like an enemy, but warn him like a brother.
What about widows?
