In 2 Thess 3:7-8, Paul presents us with a novel idea. Let us work so we will not be a burden to any one. This is contrary to about 20% of our society. There is an element of society that thinks that society owes them a living or should take care of them. This is basic laziness. Paul taught that if a person does not work they should not eat. Now I am not saying that we should not take care of those who are less fortunate or cannot work. That is part of the mandate of the church and society but when a person is perfectly capable of working and supporting themselves they should work. There are so many people that are just plain lazy and we have as a society even fostered and enable this idea to flourish. Paul knew that true Christians were wanting and willing to work. In fact is it gives us a testimony with others. When people see your work ethic and honesty it makes Christianity attractive. You cannot say you are a good Christian, sitting on your behind, drinking coffee, watching t.v. all the time or just being lazy. That is never an incentive for others to come to Christ but a hindrance. So today do everything to help others and work for Christ. It will be a testimony for God and you.
