The Quiet Life
“…that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.” (1 Timothy 2:2)
As we read through the Bible, we often read of the epic tales of faithful people who sacrificed all to serve the Lord. Elijah’s lonely travels, David’s relentless battles, Paul’s imprisonment, and Stephen’s martyrdom can paint a picture for us that the only way to live faithfully is to die for the cause of Christ on some foreign field… yet, that is exactly the opposite of what we are to pray for!
We are told to pray that we might live quiet, unassuming lives of dignified godliness. God wishes for us to live as plumbers, IT technicians, friendly waiters, and firemen. He desires for the world to be full of quiet examples of godly fathers and mothers holding tiny, chubby hands or mild-mannered students asking honest and insightful questions in the halls of learning.
Whatever your life is – live it for Him and let your quiet life be a silent sermon. Serve and rejoice in the day the Lord has given you to dwell in.
Matthew 4:4 #Biblebites
