Last time KING SOLOMON THE TRILLIONAIRE discussed FOOLISH things people do.
Today he talks about the FOOLISH people who do NOT work!
He uses the ANT as example of a TRUE worker.
“Consider its ways and be wise! It has NO (my emphasis) commander. It has NO (my emphasis) leader or ruler. But it stores up its food in summer. It gathers its food at harvest time.” Proverbs 6:6-8
We instead have a leader as President along with a Congress that through the Federal Food Stamp program ENCOURAGES people to be NOT like the ANT!
Here is what KING SOLOMON says about these people.
“You lazy people, how long will you lie there?” Proverbs 6:9
With our current system for as long as there is a Federal Food Stamp program! Granted there are people who are disabled and seniors who can’t afford to eat.
I know of a guy, Joe, who grew up in a middle class family, who has become this “redneck good ole boy” here in Franklin who is barely making it and spends what he does get as fast as it comes in! Unlike the ANT Joe Bubba does not store up for the hard times! And he is just one example of MILLIONS in the USA!
KING SOLOMON would NOT have tolerated the Joe Bubbas in his time!
“When will you get up from your sleep? You might sleep a little or take a little nap. You might even fold your hands and rest. Then you would be poor, as if someone had robbed you. You would have little, as if someone had stolen from you.” Proverbs 6:9-11.
