Keep a Man out of Trouble

In his first generation, man’s responsibilities appear to have been rather light. Adam was to dress the garden of Eden and keep it, name the animals God brought unto him, and avoid the forbidden fruit of the tree in the midst of the garden. Failure to fulfill that latter requirement resulted in a great deal more responsibility being placed upon him when he was sent to till the ground from which he was taken. More than four thousand years later, that principle was left unchanged. At Second Thessalonians Three, Paul the apostle taught that it was regarded to be disorderly conduct for one to fall into mischief because of a lack of productive occupation, and the Church was to withdraw from such persons. It is clear that God ordained work to keep a man out of trouble.
