Keeping it Simple

05 September 2020

There has never been a more cluttered, complicated and captivated society than today. However we have learned a great lesson during these difficult times. That much of what we have accumulated in our lives  really is not essential. We can so easily be driven by a value system that celebrates business and the many choices we have, and we are consumed in the pursuit of more. Life is not simple and we keep adding not subtracting from our hurriedness. Keeping it simple seems has fallen on hard times. Jesus teaches us that freedom is not found in having and doing but in keeping God and His will first in our heart, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven… For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:19-2 1). He invites us to step into the story of the Kingdom where somehow life becomes much more simple when one thing matters the most; Christ.
