Pastor Joshua Iginla has shared insights on 7 categories of people that should not be helped. He emphasized that helping such persons would cause more harm than good.
In a message he shared via his verified Facebook page, he wrote:
1. NEGATIVE AND INSECURE PEOPLE.
When you try to help negative minded people, they can paint your help in a negative light, and turn your good to evil. Scripture says: Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20. This is what negative minded people do.
2. TRAITORS AND BETRAYERS.
A judas is a Judas. There is no amount of help that can change a Judas (betrayer). There are people that when you try to be their helper, you will die like a leper, because they will surely betray you. Cut such people off, so they don’t destroy your life.
3. PEOPLE WITH ENTITLEMNMT MENTALITY.
There are people who feel you owe them help, such people will always want to put you under pressure to help them. Be careful, don’t respond to unnecessary pressures from entitled people.
4. SELF RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE.
These are people who feel too holy to be helped. They feel they are more righteous than you so even if you help them they will disregard your help and disregard you.
5. VICTIM MINDED PEOPLE.
Victim mentality makes you feel disadvantaged and hurt even without a cause. People with victim mentality are complainers and whiners who always feel victimized, they can even say you are helping them to victimize them.
6. LAZY PEOPLE.
Give money to a lazy man, it will further his trade in laziness. To keep helping a lazy man is to encourage his laziness and paralyze his greatness. Scripture says: He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster. Proverbs 18:9.
7. UNGRATEFUL PEOPLE.
Ungrateful people will receive help from you, and still treat you as if you have never helped them in your life. If you are not grateful, you may end as a great fool without helpers.
