Knowing God - 2 Thessalonians 3:13

brothers, never tire of doing _______
2 Thessalonians 3:13
 
Fill in the blank. Never tire of doing what?
 
Work, work, work. That's they way of our world today. And people both complain about it and simultaneously brag about it. We complain about being so busy in a way that seemingly justifies our existence.
 
God, however, built rest into our existence. Think about it ... on what day did God create? The sixth. Therefore, what was our first assignment? Day seven equaled rest. But not just laziness ... resting in God, sitting at his feet, enjoying time with God. That was our first responsibility back then ... and it still is.
 
So what does this have to do with "never tir[ing] of doing ____"?
 
Well there's only one or two things we should never tire of doing. Paul suggests on in today's lesson: "Never tire of doing what is right"!
 
In Christ's Love,
a guy who's filling more blanks ...
never tire of praying
never tire of praising God
never tire of eating ice cream
(wait ... that'll have to wait until the heavenly feast!)
