Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you,so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. I Thessalonians 4:11-12 (NIV)
This is one of the verses I’ve chosen as a "life" verse – not because it comforts me, but because it challenges me. I like noise and action and movement; this verse challenges me to slow down and be quiet. I have a job helping other people mind their businesses; this verse challenges me to mind my own.
