“Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands…” I Thessalonians 4:11
The Bible is full of verses that would be absolutely transformational if they were to be followed and obeyed by our leaders. Today’s verse is a perfect example. Could you imagine if our leaders took this verse to heart? If Washington actually minded their own business, you wouldn’t even recognize this country. We wouldn’t have military bases in over 100 different countries which would probably mean we would be ticking off a lot less terrorists, which might actually mean we wouldn’t have to take our shoes off at the airport. And that’s just one of many foreign policy implications. Think what that would mean for liberty right here at home. If the Federal Government minded its own business and left things up to the states, farmers in the northwest wouldn’t be imprisoned for selling raw milk, Communist Core… I mean Common Core wouldn’t be forcing our schools to teach evolution and history that glosses over the American Revolution.
What about the work with your hands part? Could you imagine if Washington minded their own business and got out of the business of welfare and left that to the churches? The welfare class would be non existent, because churches would help folks find a path to providing for themselves and working with their hands.
Well, enough dreaming of utopia. We can at least apply this verse to our own lives and enjoy the blessings that come from following the wisdom of God’s Word.
If you are new to prepping or would like to learn more about how to prepare for tomorrow, please read our 7 Step Preparedness Plan. Come back every Sunday for a new Prepper Bible Study! The most important prep of all is knowing GOD. Jesus said “what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world yet loses his own soul?” Prepper translation: “What good will it do you to survive the coming economic collapse, nuclear war or even a zombie apocalypse if you don’t know you will go to heaven when you die.” A recent study found that 10 out of 10 people die! On that day we will meet our Maker. It only makes sense to be prepared for that day. Click here to learn more about knowing GOD.
God bless and happy prepping,
