Warning against Idleness 6 Now   we   command   you,   beloved,   in   the   name   of our    Lord    Jesus    Christ,    to    keep    away    from believers    who    are    living    in    idleness    and    not according   to   the   tradition   that   they   received   from us. 7 For   you   yourselves   know   how   you   ought   to imitate   us;   we   were   not   idle   when   we   were   with you, 8 and   we   did   not   eat   anyone’s   bread   without paying   for   it;   but   with   toil   and   labour   we   worked night   and   day,   so   that   we   might   not   burden   any of   you. 9 This   was   not   because   we   do   not   have that   right,   but   in   order   to   give   you   an   example   to imitate. 10 For   even   when   we   were   with   you,   we gave   you   this   command:   Anyone   unwilling   to work   should   not   eat. 11 For   we   hear   that   some   of you   are   living   in   idleness,   mere   busybodies,   not doing     any     work. 12 Now     such     persons     we command   and   exhort   in   the   Lord   Jesus   Christ   to do    their    work    quietly    and    to    earn    their    own living. 13 Brothers   and   sisters,   do   not   be   weary   in doing what is right.
Gospel: Luke 21:5-19 The Destruction of the Temple Foretold 5 When   some   were   speaking   about   the   temple, how   it   was   adorned   with   beautiful   stones   and gifts   dedicated   to   God,   he   said, 6 ‘As   for   these things   that   you   see,   the   days   will   come   when not   one   stone   will   be   left   upon   another;   all   will be thrown down.’ Signs and Persecutions 7 They   asked   him,   ‘Teacher,   when   will   this   be, and   what   will   be   the   sign   that   this   is   about   to take   place?’ 8 And   he   said,   ‘Beware   that   you   are not   led   astray;   for   many   will   come   in   my   name and   say,   “I   am   he!”   and,   “The   time   is   near!”   Do not   go   after   them. 9 ‘When   you   hear   of   wars and   insurrections,   do   not   be   terrified;   for   these things   must   take   place   first,   but   the   end   will   not follow   immediately.’ 10 Then   he   said   to   them, ‘Nation   will   rise   against   nation,   and   kingdom against      kingdom; 11 there      will      be      great earthquakes,   and   in   various   places   famines   and plagues;   and   there   will   be   dreadful   portents   and great   signs   from   heaven. 12 ‘But   before   all   this occurs,   they   will   arrest   you   and   persecute   you; they    will    hand    you    over    to    synagogues    and prisons,   and   you   will   be   brought   before   kings and   governors   because   of   my   name. 13 This   will give   you   an   opportunity   to   testify. 14 So   make   up your    minds    not    to    prepare    your    defence    in advance; 15 for    I    will    give    you    words    and    a wisdom   that   none   of   your   opponents   will   be able   to   withstand   or   contradict. 16 You   will   be betrayed    even    by    parents    and    brothers,    by relatives   and   friends;   and   they   will   put   some   of you   to   death. 17 You   will   be   hated   by   all   because of   my   name. 18 But   not   a   hair   of   your   head   will perish. 19 By   your   endurance   you   will   gain   your souls.
