In stark contrast to our age of being quick to speak and quick to anger, the Apostle Paul wrote, “…make it your ambition to lead a quiet life.” What does this mean? Work hard. Mind your own business. Don’t be dependent on anybody. Be generous with those in need. The “quiet life” is a respectable life because it isn’t rooted in pride or selfishness. Following the way of Jesus leads to a life that is humble + helpful.
