|2 Thessalonians 3:8-10 |
8 Neither did we eat any man's bread without paying for it, but labored and toiled night and day, so that we might not be a burden to any of you,
9 Not because we did not have the right, but to make ourselves an example for you to follow.
10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: "If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat." [This applies to preachers also; Paul just stated in the previous verse, he worked as an example to all believers, which would include preachers.]
