Your Ambition

I love it in today’s reading (1 Thessalonians 4) where it says, “Make it your ambition to…” Then what comes next, “… live an amazing life and find the destiny God has for you!” or “… lead an extreme life and make the biggest difference possible!”


It’s “Make it your ambition to … lead a quiet life and to mind your own business.” Okayyyy. Not especially inspiring, but … okayyyyy.

But what comes next: win the respect of outsiders, that is inspiring. God wants people to know how great He is, and how He can change a life, and your life is the way He wants to let them know! What an honor, what a high calling for your life, and how inspiring is that!
