Ooi nnv TEXT — B* not weary in well
doing.—2 The*. 3: 13.
Tl>* Second Epistle to the
iuis wh probably written not long uf.
ter Ibo First, and from Cornitb, Jtha
The occasion of it scents to have been j
some intelligence which had reached
the Ap stle of ccrtiin disorderly things
which were on the increase among them.
These were not Hew, The Aposile had
taken tote of thent in his First Epistle.
The discrdi r- had their origin in part
in an expectation th y hud somehow
eeiitte to entertain, that the I)uy of tl.e
I,Old was close upon them. This had ,
made them restbss in feeling, and led a :
p-rt of their number to neglect their !
common avocations, to surrender to
idleness an 1 iis always attendant e\ ils.
The main purpo-e of the Epistle was
to correct these erroneous impressions
snd to counteract tie so evil tendencies.
It .s largely made up of consolations,
ins*ruction and admonitions. Of the
admoni ions some of the most import- j
ant are found in ihia, the third chapter. j
We have here :
1. An intimation ot the v due "f intercei
iry prayer. —l'aul begins by asking his j
Tuessulonian brethren to pray for him, ;
self and his fcllow-tvorkets (v. 1 ;) and
soon go-s on to utter his own prayer for j
them (v. 5.)
Two things, vcr\ ne-r to liis heart,
were that the go pel might lc glorified
in tinny conversion*, and that those .
eonverte I might h su-lwii< 1 in love I <

tiie.se lie was unwearied ill luhois; but,
Ikcuu-o the Lord .s lai liful, he had
great confihnoein prayer, lie would
have th>* prayers of all around. II „
"Brethren, pray for ti. was not i In-art
less, f irmal request.

Tlire ten ng evils mut be mot with '
vig ir. It may never be our duty to con
mtn>l • but it may often be our duty to
fake n firm stand, to speak plainly, and
to act with decision.
Ttiat concernin which the Apostle
speak* is the disorderly walk of certain
of the Thcssalonian '"hristisns. There
we-p some who did not. o good soldier*,
keep in the Christian line. They broke
from the ranks. They failed to walk
after the tradition, or instructions he
h d given them, and that, notwithstand
itig his previous exhortations I The*,
What shall a church do in sui ha esse

"Warn the unruly" (I The. 14. i Jim

bor and travail night and day" (v. 8.)
io nee the force of thi allusion, note
hat hi diligence at that time was not
i "quired of him. lie had the jwiwer. o r
• /At, to look to them for support. The
I iborer in apintual things is worthy of
l.ia hire; aa the Master himself had
! night (Matt. 10:9.) But. f or their
-akea be chose to surrender his right.
By that example he shows to us. as he
lid to tbem, how the gospel regard? in
lust'y. It puts honor upon it.
To earn one'* bread by some form of
labor is Christian. Of the nobility of
nanu.il labor, and of iu compatibility
•vith the highest mental and moral and
piritual worth w have a demonstration
in the example, not of Paul only, bat
t the Carpenter's Hon also.
1. .Stern law Jar the idle.— ltigbtly to
read the tenth feme one muattako care
to put the emphasis on tbe right word,
ft i* not aaid that, if, fur any such rea
son as that by age or bodily weakness or
mental defect, or the impossibility for a
iin - of finding aught to do, one does
not work, neither should he eat. The
ompliHM* is on u>uhl or will. "If any
io.,t not work."
Bo if this ia g>'in-reus to* art such hh
would ga My •arn their own hrea it is
stern t ovard those who will not. The
divine law is that in tie sweat of his
face man *h Ml eat IceuM. In his pieseut
state this is a henrfiocnt law. Man is
h-t'er and hippi r for it. Aril it is a
law which the eons'itution of thi gs
measurably compels men to k-ep. He
who, by theft or fraud, or gambling,
hop* s io evade i', sooner or later find
th t lis has made a mistake. Often such
men come to want ; or find that theirs
are, after all. the hard*at of toils; or
that their bread is nt sweet to their
ta-te, and nourishing to their life.
I'lle VM'-e, too, is "11 i d ration respect ■
ing our duly to the lazy shout us; the
at le-hodied tr-onps from bouse to house,
or the wasteful poor who are content to
live uj on cluni v. It ia a fair question
if the gospel does not forbid the support
of i hem at our own, or public or church
expense. Ill.idviscd chtiiv i- no kind
I lies*. '|'o encourage dependence is to
i intliet an injury. And yet we are to
take care that our withholding has not
another and only selfish motive.
