Thank you for that verse

An interesting note under the verse: "Paul addresses an embarrassing situation in the Thessalonian Church. Certain believers, perhaps enamored with the idea that Christ could return at any moment, became idlers, who stopped working for a living, freeloaders, who relied on the charity of others to support themselves, and busybodies who started meddling in the affairs of everyone else. Paul insists they should return to work, earn their own living, and mind their own business. He urges the Church to get involved in correcting this problem by warning such brothers and, if necessary, shunning them if they refuse correction."
See: (CCC 2427)
