The quiet life is just fine

God wants Christians to lead "tranquil and quiet" lives says Paul in 1 Timothy 2:2. "Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life" he writes again in 1 Thessalonians 4:11. Very different to what the world tells you is a worthwhile life isn't it? God isn't particularly interested in whether we're high-flying achievers or supermarket shelf stackers. He's more interested in whether or not we're saved (1 Tim.2:4)
