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. – 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12

This is a challenging Scripture, yet what an opportunity! For many people respect doesn’t come from the thrill of adventure, but the day-to-day life of industry. Are we seen as those who make our communities better, or those whose constant diversions make us a burden to our neighbors and co-workers? Make it your ambition to let your life speak louder than your words!
