There is a big divide in our nation  today...both extremes: those who don't want to work and those we want to work all the time. Neither is good.

The Bible tells us that those who don't work shouldn't eat...II Thessalonians 3:10- For even when we were with you, we gave you this command:"If anyone doesn't want to work, they shouldn't eat."

It  doesn't say those who could not work shouldn't  specified those who DON'T WANT to work.

At the other extreme we have those who WORK, WORK, WORK all the time. The Bible also speaks of this.
Actually, though many of us  in this century don't do this, the first day of the week was set aside for rest. The rest is as important as the work.

Our granddaughter Lauren and Pat needed a break from their heavy work loads. They took a vacation with friends in late June.  They certainly deserved it.  Here are pictures of one place they stopped in New Jersey...Turdo Vineyards in Cape May.

Oh if we would just realize that all the commands that were given us in the Bible are for our own good as well as for the good of others. This would be a much more pleasant world, if we all would listen to God's words and follow his lead.
