Outline

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, Col 3:23

aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you,

 so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one. 1 Thess 4:11-12

Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ
