‘Tis the gift to be simple, ‘tis the gift to be free.
Have you ever heard that before? It’s a refreshing mindset needed in this day and age of “always on/always on me” living. You know... “My cell is always on and it’s always on me.” We have a deep need to keep things simple. God meant it to be that way. Remember, He created the Garden of Eden… (Simple) but we create things like the IRS (Complicated).
Why do we always seem to fall into the trap of thinking “more is better” or “busy equals productive?” I submit that we are just WRONG! If we truly believe that God’s ways are better than ours, then let us remember that he says “Be Still and know that I AM God.”
It’s getting more and more difficult to appreciate the “simple” things in life because they seem to be going the way of the dodo bird. Let’s not merely appreciate the simple things, let’s also advocate for them.
