Time for Thorns

An independent view on life.

Smart charity…

An Alabama church is  paying off  the payday loans of 48 people,  church members and not, totaling $41,000.   Senior Pastor Van Moody is requiring those whose loans are paid to undergo financial counseling and attend financial workshops so they don’t get in the same fix again.

This is not only a fine example of Christian charity,  but also one of smart charity,  because it will help these people avoid the misery of hopeless debt.   Public education should begin teaching basic budgeting and finance in junior high school.  Of course,  public education doesn’t teach anything very useful any more, so this is probably just a dead horse to beat on.   The lesson here is that you not only help people,  you help them avoid the bad choices which landed them in trouble.   This is a lesson the government and progressives never,  ever learn.
