2 Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.
Note: You can’t expect to have a full plate, if you aren’t willing to work for what you want to eat. There are to many folk sitting around collecting extra off the hard work of another. Then they want to be upset because the Lord favors those who our their foot to the plow. Those who dig into the soil and turn it so that it can be planted. It is selfish to sit in the house with the ability to do the job, but wait on someone else to feed you. God will not have men in His house who have not learned the concept of working to earn his way. It is not the wife’s job to bring in the bacon and fry it up in the pan too. A man doesn’t sit on His wife’s hard work and demand to be served as well. That is not Godly. A man provides to the best if his ability, and he doesnt give excuses as to why he cannot supply what the family has need of.
If you do have a spouse that works, that is a blessed man. When your wife goes out to gather and bring in to put with what you have gathered, that makes for a strong family, but God demands a man work for what he eats and not just stake his claim a d usurp his position of power.
Only a woman has the right to lay up and rest, especially after birth. A man must provide, He has to find work he can excell at. Something that doesn’t belittle his manhood. All men must put their hands on something they make to fully develop their all around skill sets.
That is why a thinking ma needs a hobby to tinker with, so that he is fully rounded as a man who creates. If there are no lmjovs in your field of study. Go fix something, become a man of means and not one sitting around demanding attention, but not applying himself. There is always something you can fix, even if you know very little.
