What is the wisdom of “putting off” folly?

The Chicago Tribune article titled, Salvation Army expects a decrease in donations, contained this statement:

“The organization is currently serving people who, prior to the pandemic, had never asked for assistance.”

The Purpose of This Post

To relate an ancient proverb and Bible verses to the current needs of both the homeless and now the 53 million families in the USA who live paycheck to paycheck.

King Solomon

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act. (Proverb 3:27)

Whoever shuts their ears to the cry of the poor will also cry out and not be answered. (Proverb 21:13)

What’s My Point?

In a series of posts on the issue of 53 million Americans live paycheck to paycheck and have been abandoned by political divisiveness for government funding subsidies needed because of government mandate shutdowns of their employers.

While the headlines in the news today is jubilation of Biden, the needs are increasing for the 53 million families living paycheck to paycheck and the homeless.

There will probably not be any government funds made available for a while because of the election political divisiveness increasing while at the same time more government shutdown is being mandated because of increasing spread of the pandemic.

In My Opinion,

We need to spend some time reading up on our duties to help the needy and put in practice our beliefs by donating now more than ever to private charities.

Should the major news networks instead make this issue a headline issue in the interests of the 53 million workers living paycheck to paycheck and the homeless in our Nation?
