Quiet Life

Yesterday, when I was doing my daily devotion, I saw this verse that attracts me.

"Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we instructed you before. Then people who are not Christians will respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others." - 1 Thessalonians 4 : 11 - 12

Let me share a story that also happen on that day. As I walk, I accidentally hit a lady. I apologize, but she scolded me, asking me to look where I am going. In fact I know that she's also looking somewhere else. But, I still apologize twice. Because I remembered this verse, telling me to live a quiet live.

This is not about who's right or wrong. It's about how we look at things in live. Would you rather blow up a small matter? Or just let it go?

Besides that, the verse continues telling us to mind our own business. Why didn't we have time for our own problems, but have way too much for other people problems? Think about it, and start solving your own problems. Gossip can also be a downfall! Look at how many times it is mentioned in Proverbs. Let us learn to hold back words that hurt others.
"A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret" - Proverbs 11 - 13

Work with your own hands. Surely I don't need to explain much about it. Just remember this verse:
"Lazy people are soon poor; hard workers get rich." - Proverbs 10 : 4
