Or are the go-getters biblically obliged to meet their every need ? I say people are responsible for themselves, and should trust in God, not the government, when they get in trouble. I believe the truly needy should be cared for, but a family that's been on welfare for three generations are not truly needy, they are lazy. How do we seperate the needy from the lazy ? Should people who have to shell out money to care for both ?
