We often get a false picture of what it means to take Christ’s imminent return seriously. Apocalypse minded people often have a certain feel to them. The Thessalonians needed some guidance, as their responses to the imminent return were in misguided overzealousness, or lethargy. The Scripture asks us to spend our time being constructive with our Christian family. It urges us to reconsider how we treat one another, and who we value.
