The idea here is that the new man we are told about in Ephesians 4:24 does not steal but instead works an honest job, one that he can be proud of. The point of working is not only so that you can provide for the things you need but to give to anyone who might have a need.
For the most part, I think of jobs as getting what you need to get ahead, to provide for our families so that we aren’t tempted to steal. Very few times do I put the needs of others before mine. I’m sure that you can run through the list of names and come across many people who might have a need.
Working to give, not to get.
