You are to be commended for your dedication to studying God's Word. Very few people, even among those who claim to follow Christ, take the time to listen to what God's Word has to say to us. People get to the end of their lives with many different regrets. Some may regret that they didn't save enough for retirement, or spend enough time with their kids, or travel enough. Have you ever met anyone who regretted spending too much time reading the Bible? You are setting a pattern for daily Bible reading that hopefully will stay with you the rest of your life. You are never going to regret having made that decision. You have chosen to do what is right. God will bless you for it.
Paul wrote two letters to the Thessalonian brethren. They are short, so you should have no problem reading them both this morning. Please do so at this time.
The church in Thessalonica had become idle. They stopped working and were waiting for Jesus to return again, but Jesus did not say when He was going to return. We should always be ready for His return, but that does not mean we stop working and become burdens to others. Paul warns us, "if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either." (II Thessalonians 3:10). The church is always there for you when you need it but do your best to carry your own weight and live a productive life.
