Work and Eat
This is one of my Paintings of a Sheep Station Homestead.
Where people do work for their Daily Bread.
In the Gascoyne Area – North West Australia.
2 Thessalonians: Chapter 3 verse 10
……”If a man will not work,
he shall not eat”
This makes us really think, do we truly work for God in all the ways He wants us to.
He supplies all our food, all our needs; we are not to be bludgers of our fellow Brothers and Sisters in Christ nor of the world.
We are to use the gifts He has given us to work for the Kingdom, in everyday ways and in Spiritual ways.
So there we are – whether our work is humble or great, we need to get on and do it. Not wait for others to do for us what we should be doing to earn our daily bread.
If we help others – that is still working for God – He says in the Commandment’s – Love your neighbour as yourself. That really means I believe to be friendly towards them, not gush over them with pretend love.
Work for God can be done in many ways, not just for money.
It is surprising what gifts of love come to us in the form of food sometimes in exchange for our help.
God Blesses us day by day, especially as we work for The Kingdom of God.
This is part of my work to send forth the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the hope that you and whoever else reads these Blogs come to the knowledge and love of The One True God (that’s if you have not already done so) who is – Our Father in Heaven.
