1 Thessalonians 2:9-11 The Passion Translation (TPT)
9 Beloved brothers and sisters, surely you remember how hard we labored among you. We worked night and day so that we would not become a burden to you while we preached the wonderful gospel of God. 10 With God as our witness you saw how we lived among you—in holiness, in godly relationships,[a] and without fault. 11 And you know how affectionately we treated each one of you, like a loving father cares for his own children.
