Simplicity: Un-Cluttering Life

December 27, 2014

“God made man simple: man’s complex problems are of his own devising.” Ecclesiastes 7:30. My Dad used to say, “You don’t possess things; things possess you.” In this sense, simplicity is freedom. We will consider the simplicity of Jesus’ life, and we will notice that scripture condemns both materialism and asceticism. Life centered on having it all or centered on denying oneself all pleasure are equally not Biblical. How do we surrender all and still be good managers of what is in our charge?
