Good to Work
2 Thessalonians 3:6-17 Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from any brother who is walking in idleness and not in accord with the tradition that you received from us...
Paul's final instruction in 2 Thessalonians 3:6-15 is to not be idle. Rather, Paul tells us to be willing to work, to keep busy at work and to work quietly and earn a living.
All of us have our own unique work roles. I can think of at least three different roles for me: my work at Back to the Bible, my work as worship leader at my church, and my very important work role of being a wife. So as I considered Paul's instruction, I took a few minutes and thought about all three of these work areas.
So think about your different work roles? How are you doing in the "work" area for each? And, if you find you're not quite meeting Paul's mark in a particular area, what are a couple of things you can do to improve? Tami W.
