When there is no wind, just row. (Keith Minier, American clergyman)
To enjoy a good sailing excursion, you have to have wind. Otherwise, you will just drift with the current. That’s not a very satisfactory analogy to life when there seems to be no supporting breeze to sustain your effort. But, you can’t just sit idle. As Minier suggests, you need to row the boat, you have to exercise your own strength to move forward.
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands (1 Thessalonians 4:11).
