The Story of God: Simplicity

Matthew 6:25-34, NRSV

Reflections

Life is deep and simple, and what our society gives us is shallow and complicated.

— Fred Rogers,
in Christianity Today

  • Just a little anxiety or worry could cripple us
  • We have cluttered life, spirituality, attachments
  • Whatever we treasure on earth, don’t expect it to give you peace and rest
  • Opposite of Simplicity
  • Don’t worry, worry doesn’t produce anything (v27)
  • Priority of Simplicity
  • Trust in God and be part of His Story
  • Our priority is to seek God first (v33)
  • v33: But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness
  • Rhythm of Simplicity
  • To live daily life/rhythm one day at a time, especially during time of suffering
