Do Not Grow Weary of Doing Good – 2 Thess 3

In the final chapter of his letter to the brethren at Thessalonica, Paul again admonishes them against idleness. In fact, he tells them that those among them who will not work, should not eat. It is the will of God that everyone who is able to work should contribute to their own welfare, and not be a burden to others. They are not to treat such people as enemies, but should not have anything to do with them, so as to shame them. Of this he says:

For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living.
