Simple words and phrases. Simple life and places. Life can seem so complex at times. Is it even possible to simplify? Don’t we all want a little more simplicity in our lives? If that’s your desire, here’s a place to start with a few simple words to live by:
Simple Scriptures to Remember
Seek first God’s kingdom and what God wants. Then all your other needs will be met as well (Matthew 6:33, NCV).
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain (Philippians 1:21, NASB).
My Personal Prayer for You
Lord Jesus, “simple” is not a word that slips off our tongues easily. We all like the idea of simplicity. But most of us don’t know how to incorporate it into our daily lives. Help us to live simply by trusting You more and adjusting our lives, if necessary, to reflect Your values. Your mission, Your purpose, Your life was simple, and You lived in simple obedience to Your Heavenly Father. Show us what to let go of and what to embrace, so we can follow Your example better. And teach us how to simply love You and others more.
