At the end of last year my friend Melissa wrote a series of posts that stroke down into my heart. She wrote about the importance of living a quiet life, about reducing the noises, the noises around us and the ones that we ourselves generate, which try to drown down the Word of God in our hearts.
“But we urge you brothers, to do this more and more, and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, so that you may walk properly before outsiders…” (I Thessalonians 4: 11-12)
“[Wives] let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.” (I Peter 3:4)
* A book that I will be reading more than once this year is: The Quest for Meekness and Quietness of Spirit by Matthew Henry
