The Command, The Charge In The Name Of The Lord Jesus Christ, An Ensample, and The Exhortation To Work


Now we command you, brethren, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.

For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;

Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:

Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.

For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.

Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.

But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.

And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.

Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.

This salutation of Paul with mine own hand, which is the token in every epistle: so I write.

2 Thessalonians 3:6-17 KJV

The Apostle Paul was an Entrepreneur. From what I researched he was a tentmaker. He did not have an employer, he worked, as the scripture states, “wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you”.

I love this. It encourage me as an Entrepreneur. I have heard the saying, “If a man doesn’t work he shouldn’t eat.” given in regards to working a job. Being employed.

However, from the Apostle Paul’s ensample, he worked night and day, and from what I researched, he was a tentmaker. An Entrepreneur.

As a born again believer in Jesus Christ, you should not be idle or a busybody. You should be working and eating your own bread.

Ibotta is an app that allows you to receive free cash on everyday purchases.
It is FREE and it is LEGIT!
This is a great way to get money while shopping!
us-dollars-84594_1920
You don’t have to do anything more than what you want to do as far as your shopping goes. You can shop at grocery stores, online, for hotels, and more.
I personally have used it and received cash that I transferred to my PayPal account. Receiving your cash via PayPal is an option, Ibotta also offers gift cards.
The typical scenario is, you sign up for an Ibotta account. You can do this three ways:
  1. You can go directly to their website and sign up.
  2. Download their app and sign up.
  3. Use a referral link from someone who is already signed up with Ibotta.
Once you are signed up and logged into your account, you search for offers that they have already pre-populated within their system. You don’t have to buy anything you don’t want to. If you are going to buy bread, and Ibotta has an offer where you can receive $0.25 in cash for a loaf of bread, any brand, that you purchase at a select store or at any store, then you can simply select that offer. Once you purchase the bread and your purchase is verified with Ibotta either via:
  1. Uploading your receipt.
  2. Your linked store loyalty account.
  3.  The Ibotta App.

You will receive the $0.25 within your Ibotta account balance. Once you reach the minimum of $20.00, you can cash out. You don’t have to stop at $20.00 you can continue to accumulate more money and cash out.

Who wouldn’t want to receive money on something that they were already going to the store to purchase, planning to purchase, or would like to purchase?
If you decide to try Ibotta, you can use my referral link to sign up:
