Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands,that they may have something to share with those in need (Eph. 4:28).
There is deep, complex theological meaning in this text that requires a thorough knowledge of Greek, Hebrew, Latin, Aramaic, and Dutch to understand, as well as close familiarity with the customs of the ancient Near East and Pacoima.
Well, actually, not really.
Earn your keep.
Happy Friday, Beloved.
