We talk about how our inner lives and self-understanding (especially our duplicity and attempts at “impression management”) are transformed by simplicity, and how that shows itself in our external actions.
We begin a three-part message series focused on the spiritual gift – and calling – of simplicity. God calls us to a life of meaning and peace, not frantic scrambling and never-satisfied longing. It’s a life with a single, central focus that puts everything else in its proper place, a life of “seeking God’s kingdom first” (Matthew 6:33). We talk about what simplicity is, what it isn’t, and what Scripture has to say about living with our eyes focused on God.
