Deuteronomy 15 : 7-8 - If anyone is poor among your fellow Israelites in any of the towns of the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward them. Rather, be openhanded and freely lend them whatever they need.

The message that spoke to me this week, is to lead a quiet life of ambition, minding my own business. Too often we muddle in other people's lives. My goal is to work on leading a more quiet life.
