Work Quietly and Eat Your Own Food
Gloating is a sin. Hatred is a sin. Anger to wound another is a sin.
Whining should be a sin.
By these standards the whole nation needs a time out.
The. WHOLE. nation.
If this is an end of something, it was a long time coming and we all drove the bus.
I don’t think it’s the end. I think it’s the truth, and it will get more real before it gets better, because truth is hard. Once you let it out the only options are to hide it, or use it as a place to begin again.
I personally think begin again is the better option, even though it’s going to be a long hard haul.
But are we people of faith or not? Do we trust in the Lord or not?
Here’s what Paul said this weekend in his second letter to the Thessalonians, chapter 3.
He told those arguing, gossiping, spiteful, lazy, thinking-they’re-better-than-everyone-else Thessalonians:
We hear that some are conducting themselves among you in a
disorderly way, by not keeping busy but minding the business of others.
Such people we instruct and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to work quietly
and to eat their own food.
Can I get an Amen?
