SIMPLICITY AND HUMBLENESS IS BETTER THAN PRIDE AND ARROGANCE AND A COMPLICATED LIFE.

Have you ever noticed the difference between those people who love worldly riches and those who do not?

The people who love worldly riches are obsessed with how to obtain more of what they already have. They run frantically around doing whatever it takes ( lying, cheating, oppressing, or stealing) to get more. Little do they realize that obtaining worldly riches in abundant proportion will not get them into Heaven. Pride, arrogance and looking down on others not as fortunate as you will not get you one step beyond the "Pearly Gates".

People who lead simple and humble lives seem to have a happier and more fulfilling life. They have more of a sense of direction and focus which is not earthly, but heavenly. They take each day as it comes and never look forward to tomorrow or the problems of tomorrow. God is their central focus and they believe that He will provide their needs today and tomorrow or the next day after that He will do the same. Just as God took care of the Hebrew children in the desert by providing water and manna on a daily basis; so He can provide for anyone who trusts Him without reservation. Humility and meekness are eternal values that will last forever.

Think of ways to simplify your life so that God may be glorified.

Colossians 3:12-17 - God has chosen you and made you his holy people. He loves you. So always do these things: Show mercy to others, be kind, humble, gentle and patient. Get along with each other, and forgive each other. If someone does wrong to you, forgive that person because the Lord forgave you. Do all these things; but most important, Love each other. Love is what holds you all together in perfect unity. Let the peace that Christ gives control your thinking, because you were all called together in one body to have peace. Always be thankful. Let the teaching of Christ live in you richly. Use all wisdom to teach and instruct each other by singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Everything you do or say should be done to obey Jesus your Lord. And in all you do, give thanks to God the Father through Jesus.

Prayer: Dear Father simplify my life until only Thy Love is visible in me. Amen.
