Verse: to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you 1 Thess 4:11
Paul wrote this letter from Corinth to Thessalonians the church he established. Paul’s purpose in writing this letter was to encourage the new believers in their trials, to give instruction concerning godly living.
Paul gave lot of instructions, one of it has spoken to me so closely. That we need to have an ambition to lead a quiet life. No showing off, not trying to impress other people, not fighting to be in limelight, not comprising God’s standards to keep everyone happy.
Paul in the above verse again talks of minding our own business, not keen to know about other, not comparing with others, not gossiping nor slandering. But our focus is to work hard in the place where God has placed us.
Prayer: Father Lord, help me to lead a quiet life, focused to fulfill the plans and purpose Lord has for me. To listen to the Almighty not running behind men. Amen.
