“But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary in doing good“
 
But as for you, brethren,
 
Should the slothful not follow Paul’s instructions, those who follow the order of biblical Christianity by working for a living should do four things. First, they are not to grow weary in “doing good” and working for a living.
 
do not grow weary in doing good
“Weary” means to be utterly spiritless, to be wearied out, exhausted. A weary person loses his or her motivation to accomplish God’s will. He or she quits and gives up. God’s will in this case is to never lose heart in working at our job.
Principle:
We should never lose our motivation for daily work.
Application:
Christians who do not provide for their family financially when they are able to do so are worse than infidels.
“But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever” (1 Timothy 5:8)
We should never allow ourselves to become discouraged in providing for our family through our employment. The Devil wants to discourage us in the daily mundane. He will do anything to discourage us along the way.
