Do I Have to Be Quiet to Be Precious in the Sight of the Lord?

 

gentle spirit

 I sang 1 Peter 3:3, 4 to my kiddos this morning and my 8-year old girl says, “Mom, do I really have to be quiet to be precious to God?” And I said, “No, the word used for quiet actually means “peaceful” or “tranquil” – it is about having a peace in your soul, a calmness, that you are steady in God.” She says, “Oh good, because I love having fun!”

Such a misunderstood scripture. Friends, if God made you “fun” then be fun! You do not have to be quiet, but keep your eyes on Jesus and have an anchor in your soul that you are His, and whatever comes your way, “It is well with my soul.

Love, SM
