Paul and Silas had labored at Paul's trade of tent making to
supply their daily needs rather then become a financial
burden to the Thessalonians. Although they had worked to
the point of exhaustion, they kept on announcing the Gospel
of Jesus Christ. Consequently, their witness of life and lip
bore dividends for God.
For ye remember, brethren, our labor and travail: for labouring
night and day, because we would not be chargeable unto any of
you, we preached unto you the gospel of God.
1 Thess. 2:9
The Lord is good to those whose HOPE is in Him, to the one who seeks Him.
