In writing his second letter to the Thessalonians, St Paul writes this
For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”(3:20)

One thing I remember from a recent workshop is the dynamics between competency and commitment. I realised that while competency is ‘a skill’ issue, commitment is ‘a will’ issue.

Therefore, there could be nothing to do with ability and capability, because a person might be adequately skilled. If they are however not committed, nothing will be done because their will is excluded from the variables under consideration.

Our willingness to do or engage is called into question because without commitment, multiple things may be touched or started, but no final results will be presented. In simple terms,

without commitment, nothing gets finished.
