The Daily Nosh – II Thessalonians 3:10-11
For even when we were with you, we would give you this order: if anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. For we hear that some among you are behaving irresponsibly – not busy, but busybodies. (TLV) II Thessalonians 3:10-11
Nosh: Work is an indicator of responsible and trustworthy character. An idle person is one who, though able, chooses not to work and has many excuses for not doing so. This is a character flaw and is often the source of many related difficulties, that affect not only the one who is choosing idleness but also those associated with the idle person. For a less stressful and more peaceful life, when possible, minimize or eliminate connection to idle people. You will be happy you did.
