Good Christian charity

I often see Christians hassled over comments about not supporting increased “charity” to welfare recipients. They are told that they are bad Christians and that “Jesus would be ashamed.” Well, let us not forget:
1 Timothy 5:8: “But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”
2 Thessalonians 3:11-12: We hear that some among you are idle. They are not busy; they are busybodies. Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the bread they eat.
