2 Thessalonians 3
2 Thessalonians 3: 10 For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” 11 We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive. They are not busy; they are busybodies.
I think Coffman offers a very apt commentary to these verses:
The shameful and unwholesome results of a weak and foolish system of charity which ignores this principle were outlined thus by W. F. Adeney:
2 Thess. 2
We have traded notes on how we often “feel” that something is within God’s will but are then surprised when we look into the Word of the Lord. In Proverbs 16 the writer several times addresses our weakness & provides the wisdom we need:
Proverbs 16: To humans belong the plans of
but from the Lord comes the proper answer of the tongue.
2 All a person’s ways seem pure to them,
but motives are weighed by the Lord.
3 Commit to the Lord whatever
and he will establish your plans.
9 In their hearts humans plan their course,
but the Lord establishes their steps.
