For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example, because we did not act in an undisciplined manner among you, (2 Thessalonians 3:7)

nor did we eat anyone's bread without paying for it, but with labor and hardship we kept working night and day so that we would not be a burden to any of you; (2 Thessalonians 3:8)

not because we do not have the right to this, but in order to offer ourselves as a model for you, so that you would follow our example. (2 Thessalonians 3:9)
