Even while we were with you, we gave you this command: “Those unwilling to work will not get to eat.” (2 Thessalonians 3:10)
Everyone is so busy that unwillingness to work doesn’t appear applicable. Many of us work way too much. However, being busy versus working on God’s plan for yourself is two very different things. You must be willing to work on God’s plan for you. There is more to His plan than just getting by, or just paying the bills. You must purposefully strive to work hard using the gifts and talents that God has given you. When you do, your work will be effortless and purposeful!
