Scripture Passage: 2 Thessalonians 3:6-10

Paul was preaching the gospel wherever he could find people to listen to him. At the same time, he was working at his trade of tent-making in order to pay for his food, lodging and transport. He set a good example for his church members. In the new churches he started, he made it a rule that there were to be no folks who would depend on someone else for a living and not work for themselves. People who are idle should not have a share of the food produced.

1. Where did Paul preach?
He preached wherever he could find anyone to listen.
2. How did he pay his expenses?
He made tents and sold them.
3. Why should we avoid idleness?
Because we need to work to be able to feed ourselves.

Memory verse: Colossians 3:23
Work hard and cheerfully at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. (NLT)
