Excelling More In Life: Hard Work & Love     


1 Thessalonians 4:9-12 (NASB)
9  Now as to the love of the brethren, you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another;
10  for indeed you do practice it toward all the brethren who are in all Macedonia. But we urge you, brethren, to excel still more,
11  and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands, just as we commanded you,
12  so that you will behave properly toward outsiders and not be in any need.


  1. Responsibility Of Work

1 Thessalonians 4:9-10 (NASB)


Genesis 1, 2, & 3 (NASB)

  1. Rules Of Work

1 Thessalonians 4:11 (NASB)


2 Thessalonians 3:10-13 (NASB)
10  For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.
11  For we hear that some among you are leading an undisciplined life, doing no work at all, but acting like busybodies.
12  Now such persons we command and exhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to work in quiet fashion and eat their own bread.
13  But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary of doing good.



  1. Reward Of Work

1 Thessalonians 4:12 (NASB)


Ephesians 4:28 (NASB)
28  He who steals must steal no longer; but rather he must labor, performing with his own hands what is good, so that he will have something to share with one who has need.
