Quiet Life

I think our culture undervalues quiet. We have bought the lie that silence is boring. We value volume, stimulation, and adrenaline. We move from project to project, activity to activity, purchase to purchase, adventure to adventure. We reason that without these things our life is without value or interest to others. In a way, they have become our God’s. I am not saying in and of themselves, there is anything wrong with these pursuits. However, if we place them above our Heavenly Father, our priorities are incorrect. If we put the applause of people above our relationship with the members of the Trinity our values are skewed. Paul calls us in the book of 1 Thessalonians to, “live a quiet life”. A life dedicated to growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ and sharing Him with all people. Pray we keep our eyes on our Heavenly Father, put nothing before Him, and place value in what he values…today and always!

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life. 1 Thessalonians 4:11a

Be still. Psalm 46:10a
