I'm looking for an easy answer. I'm looking for a pre-packaged solution. Shouldn't someone else have worked all this out? Can't I just latch onto what they've done? Don't make me think for myself. Can't I just click "like" on what some famous rich person says, they must have it all together?
We were given the following verse at Phil's "Bible Basics" course.
Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we instructed you before. Then people who are not believers will respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others. 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12
After reading it once I saw what I wanted to see, after praying and reading the whole chapter I think I began to see what God was saying to the Thessalonians, after reading it some more the ideas that transcend time or place start to bubble up. Now that's "PRETTY" cool (Bible-basics inside joke).
To get more out of the Bible, put more in.
