14Take special note of anyone who does not obey our instruction in this letter. Do not associate with them, in order that they may feel ashamed. 15Yet do not regard them as an enemy, but warn them as you would a fellow believer.

3: 14-15   Paul counseled the church to stop supporting financially those who persisted in idleness. Paul was not talking about those who were not able to make a living or were experiencing difficult times in their lives. He was talking about people who were lazy and took advantage of the kindness of others. Paul was not advising coldness or cruelty but tough love with the purpose of helping people become responsible.

This is not like "kick the dust off you sandals"! this is our first time of trying to tell others about CHRIST and a way of living our everyday life. We should always tell all of JESUS CHRIST and his grace and mercy. But we are not to associate with those who are unbelievers. Meaning if you assaociate with bad company , you might be tempted to do the same as they do, which is not obeying GODS word. So,ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and insure you are telling all who disobey GODS word that they will face a time of judgement. JESUS IS COMING BACK and we all want to go with him at the rapture. And we sure don't want to face HIM on the day of judgement as unbelievers. by RICHARD DEAN BROOKS
