Need help finding passages from The Bible

Hi. I need some help. :shrug: My newly-discovered brother is an advid reader of The Bible, but does not support his child at all. Could you help by telling me some Bible passages that I can pass along to him regarding a parent’s responsibility to provide Love, Support, Housing, Clothing, Food, Books, Toys etc to their child? Thanks!

1 Timothy 5:8 And whoever **does not provide **for relatives and **especially family members **has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

Matthew 5:42 Give to the one who asks of you, and **do not turn your **back on the one who wants to borrow.

Matthew 18:5 And whoever recieves one child such as this in my name recieves me.

Thank you so much for the Bible passages! I’ll type them out, along with the Books and Numbers and send to my brother. ~ Joi
