I have had a verse from the Thessalonian letters heavy on my mind of late.
"Make it your AMBITION to lead a quiet life..."
That is a very hard thing to do in a complex world that places so much demand on us from all directions! Paul appears to say that we are going to have to stay focused and work hard to maintain a spirit of quietness.
Interestingly, Hebrews says much the same thing. "Labor to enter into rest." When all our lives have been lived under the law and performing to achieve, it is going to be hard work indeed to change the direction of our lives toward quietness.
