I used to be able to read a book, while my children were passively watching PBS and playing noisily next to me. Alas, that phase of life has passed.
Now, I much prefer a QUIET space when I sit down to read. What has changed?
I don’t have a definitive answer to this question but I think that it has something to do with the type of books that I am now reading. When you read a book on prayer or other spiritual disciplines, it stands to reason that you would want a more serene atmosphere than if you are reading the latest John Grisham novel.
I surmise that I will increasingly long for the QUIET as I strive to be more & more in the presence of Christ.
“…and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you,” – 1 Thessalonians 4:11 NIV
