How to Work with Diligence

Ephesians 4:28

 Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need.

Share with the needy.

Colossians 3:23,24

And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.

All your work is unto the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 2:9

 For you remember, brethren, our labor and toil; for laboring night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you, we preached to you the gospel of God.

Do not burden others.

1 Thessalonians 4:11

…that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you,

Lead a quiet life.

2 Thessalonians 3:10

For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat.

Work to eat. (Not eat to work.)
