    1 Timothy 5:8
    But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

    Leviticus 25:35
    “If your brother becomes poor and cannot maintain himself with you, you shall support him as though he were a stranger and a sojourner, and he shall live with you.

    Leviticus 19:32
    “You shall stand up before the gray head and honor the face of an old man, and you shall fear your God: I am the Lord.

    Psalm 71:9
    Do not cast me off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength is spent.

    Hi dear Franszwa, and welcome. There is also a caution given us in honoring our parents in
    Mar 7:10 For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:

    Now there were some that instead of giving to their parents in need, by their tradition they gave what I suppose was a sort of tithe they called "Corban" to God instead of helping the parents.

    Mar 7:11 But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.

    Mar 7:12 And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;

    Mar 7:13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
