Complicating?




Complicating simple? It’s been said that there are “two types of people: those who simplify the complicated and those who complicate the simple.” Perhaps our lives look like this to God when He shows us how to live but we’re busy living it our way. He’s looking at a clear path, while at the same time watching us drive in all directions but the one He is pointing at.


Think about it. We struggle about with all our problems and frustrations, not realizing that if we look up, we’ll find the answers. God’s message to us is simple. “Deny ourselves and follow Him.”

God’s Word tells us: “You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times. A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah” (Matthew 16:1-4).


It’s the right way and it’s the best way. We often are so focused on the way we think we need to go, that we fail to see the way that God has revealed would be the best way to go. Don’t complicate the simple. Take every opportunity to see how simple knowing Jesus is. Simplify!


“Father, thank you for Jesus' example of turning away from senseless arguments. Too often I want to defend myself instead of just recognizing that hard hearts often can’t be reached. Please give me more wisdom so I know when to stay and defend and when to graciously excuse myself and move on.” Amen!”


“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
