Idleness is a serious distraction, so let’s take serious the things of God.
1) The Seriousness of Idleness (3:6, 14-15)
it disobeys Scripture (3:6)
It ignores God’s good design for work (3:6, Genesis 1-2)
it distracts us from loving and providing for oneself and others (3:11-12)
And it wastes time without reference to God (3:11, 2 Thess 1:11-12)
2) The Witness against Idleness (3:7-9)
Paul's hard work (3:7-8)
Paul's loving motivation (3:7-9)
Paul's Gospel Conduct (3:6,8 - 1 Thess 2:9-12)
3) The Weariness caused by Idleness (3:13)
