A Quiet Life
1Thessalonians 4: 9 - 12
"9 But concerning brotherly love you have no need that I should write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another; 10 and indeed you do so toward all the brethren who are in all Macedonia. But we urge you, brethren, that you increase more and more; 11 that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you, 12 that you may walk properly toward those who are outside, and that you may lack nothing."
Love isn’t just a word - it’s a lifestyle. Love encompasses all that we do!
Paul, being led by the Holy Spirit, admonishes the church to increase more and more in love. Then he gives examples of what love in action looks like. “That we aspire to lead a quiet life, mind your own business, and work with your own hands…”.
There is also an end promise in this walk of love … “that you may lack nothing.”
