Wouldn’t you want to be like the people Paul is writing about here. Whenever someone prays for you they say, “Oh thank you God!” And where you are bearing so much fruit in your ministry that word is getting around that that the Love and faith you have for Jesus is brimming over to other believers.
Paul had a pretty strong view on free loaders. He was a very strong leader, who made wrote very clear instructions in his letters. I have a few thoughts on this.
What do you think about? Are your thoughts positive or negative? How would most of us be thinking if we were in prison? What would we be thinking about? The food’s bad, it smells, I hate these guards, Woe is me, why me God?
