The heart of simplicity is an uncompromising devotion to Jesus. It is to love him more than anything else. Jesus puts it like this, “Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.”
We enter the gateway to simplicity with a decision to give up the unnecessary stuff and the needless activity for Jesus. Then we are free to focus on the one needful thing.
Simplicity of life is an inward lack of concern for possessions and activities that are available to us in our day-to-day world. It’s a point of view more than an action. Such is the simplicity of Christ.
The Son of God was able to keep it simple. Jesus only said what he heard the Father saying and only did what he saw the Father doing. He did nothing more and nothing less. The kingdom of heaven was his only concern. Where are your priorities?
