Working for a Living (2 Thessalonians 3:11-13)

Today’s scripture: 2 Thessalonians 3:11-13

Paul wrote to the Christians in Colossae, “… whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men” (3:23). He also wrote in his first letter to the church at Thessalonica, “
to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands …”

If we’re able to do so, we should be working for our own bread. And in fact, we should be so busy doing our work, we won’t have time to be “undisciplined” or act as “busybodies.”

It’s true. If we’re focused on doing what God has called us to do, whether occupational or vocational, we truly won’t have time to get caught up in other people’s business. We won’t have time to gossip about what everyone else is doing.

Instead, we’ll be serving God and others. We’ll being doing kingdom-building work.

And that’s something we shouldn’t grow weary of doing.
