Leisure & unemployment

(2 Thessalonians 3:6 - 13)


  • In our society today some people are employed and others are not.

  • Sometimes if a person is not employed, he/she may be idle and may not contribute to the development of the society.

  • We should take up activities that will help us not be idle.

  • An idle mind is the devil’s workshop. We can volunteer in various hospitals, in church or in community centres during the holidays to avoid idleness.

  • In 2 Thessalonians 3:6-13, Paul commands us to work and avoid being lazy. He tells us that if we do not work, then we should not eat.

  • It is through productive activity that we are able to exalt the name of the Lord.
