Topic: THE DIGNITY OF WORK
Text. : 2 Thessalonians 3:1-18
2 Thessalonians 3:7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;
2 Thessalonians 3:8 Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:
2 Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
2 Thessalonians 3:11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.
2 Thessalonians 3:12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.
From the beginning, man was not created to be idle, how do I know ? Genesis 2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. Even when Adam has not sinned he had work to do, but when he sinned he came under hard labour, the ground was cursed for his sake Genesis 3:17.
You might be choked to know that God is a worker : St. John 5:17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work. Laziness is not of God, idleness is a great weapon in the hand of the devil, it leads to poverty, no matter how much you pray if you fold you arms you will remain poor.
16 years ago the Lord told me ‘ if I multiply your zero with any figure it will be zero ‘He asked me ‘ 100 multiply by 0 is what ? ‘ I answered by saying 0. He went further to say ‘ I am a multiplier, my blessing is geometric progression nature not arithmetic, that is why when a man marries a woman they become one, it is 1×1 not 1+1 ‘.
A productive work earns you a living that adds value to your life and family, it eventually earns you dignity, an independent man is a dignified man, borrowing and begging reduce a man in worth and value. May the Lord prosper your work this week and forever .
* Lord give me grace to do my work well.
* Prosper the works of my hands, Lord.
