What's your ambition?

1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 (New International Version)

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.
This passage is a harder one than most people would admit. And I don't know about you, but I think I'd be pretty hard pressed to support my family by working with my hands, so I'm going to go ahead and assume there's some room to breathe in that phrase.

The thought of people minding their own business... we do, but we don't. I need more thought on that.
