1 Thessalonians 2:9

9For you remember, brothers a  our labor and toil: we b  worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you, while we proclaimed to you the gospel of God.

2 Thessalonians 3:7-9

7For you yourselves know c  how you ought to imitate us, because d  we were not idle when we were with you, 8nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but e  with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you. 9It was f  not because we do not have that right, but to give you in ourselves g  an example to imitate.
