The Responsibility of Discipleship
Even while we were still there with you we gave you this rule: 'He who does not work shall not eat.'
—2 Thessalonians 3:10 (TLB)
One of the Christian’s responsibilities in following Christ is to have a new attitude toward work. So many young people want Christ without responsibility. Jesus was not a drop-out. As a carpenter, He worked hard with His hands. The Apostle Paul made tents for a living while he carried on the work that God assigned him. Whatever work a Christian does is done unto the Lord. He should do his best at whatever his trade or vocation. He should be faithful, clean, and honest.
Prayer for the day
Thank You for teaching us that work is a blessing, Lord Jesus.
