2 Thessalonians 3:12- Settling Down And Earning A Living

12 Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the food they eat.

Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus ChristPaul is commanding them with the authority given to him, not to always be the receiver (give me, give me) of goods if they can work. In the Book of Acts, it quotes Jesus saying, [Acts 20:35] 35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ “

settle down and earn the food they eatIt is important to establish one’s life (in one place) and allow the Holy Spirit to direct us to the place (work), He wants us to be in, so that we may earn and minister to the person that is with us.
