Appreciating the Quiet Life

10By: Russ Matthews

Here’s something you won’t find on your social media feed: celebration of the quiet life.

Most people can relate to a peaceful life as they read the short passage from the Apostle Paul.

“I urge that… we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.”

In our modern, fast-paced world, it can be challenging to stop and see the joys of this world.

Maybe this passage can challenge us all to slow down and see the gift of life for what it is to us all. By pausing, this provides us the time to consider not only our own life but how God fits into our world.

He gave us the blessing of life, but have you taken time to appreciate this gift or even, the giver?

Take a moment to quietly thank God, today. The one who gave you everything, even a quiet life.
