I know in the Bible it states that if one doesn't provide for his family they are worse than an infidel. So I am curious about my situation. I do not work, at least not work where I am paid. I stay home to care for my wife who has MS. I also care for our 17 month old daughter. I am not paid for being a caregiver. So we live off of food stamps, my daughter is on medicaid, I have county insurance that is very basic, and my wife has Medicare and Medicaid share of cost. My wife also receives SSDI and my daughter receives a dependent disability check because of my wife's SSDI. We live in low income housing in a reduced rate apartment because of our low income. Now, my wife tells me every so often that I need to go to work. Others outside of the family have said the same thing. What they don't realize and I think after I showed my wife on paper, she finally understands, is that we stand to lose more than we gain. We would lose our apartment and would have to pay full price for another apartment, I would lose the county insurance and my daughter would lose Medicaid. That means that I would have to get something through the registry, and when I had looked into it, just for me it was over $250 a month and over a $4000 deductible. I would hate to see what would happen if I added our daughter. I would not qualify for help because our income wouldn't be high enough. My wife would lose share of cost Medicaid which would make her lose her Medicare advantage planwhich means we are required to pay the 20% that Medicare doesn't and with her MS, that's an awful lot of money out-of-pocket. We would also lose food stamps. The only job I can find would be minimum wage and that is not enough to cover all that I stated above. So as the title states, we stand to lose more than we gain. As a Christian, what am I supposed to do?
