Keeping it simple

Ironically, the moment I typed that title, my brain started running in overtime trying to figure out how to say something awesome and useful and short and concise and life-altering here.

But really I ought to heed my own title and truly keep it simple. So I’m writing about something my dear friend said:

“The Gospel is so simple, an eight year old can live it.”

We were talking about life and relationships and God and why we’re here. And how sometimes we just make things so complicated. But it’s really quite simple. And yet here I go trying to make a complex post. 🙂

Suffice it to say: the gospel of Christ is ALL about love — loving God, loving others, loving ourselves. That’s it. And we get in this trap of thinking that surely it’s got to be something more than that, right? Surely we’ve got to look high and low and find out the secret to it all. But the secret is that it’s not a secret at all.

  1. You are so so right, I was commenting on another post (about how to navigate in-between situations, where you have no control of the outcome), and I found myself saying that keeping the hope, the faith, loving each other and counting our blessings, even, more so, the little things of everyday.
    Then it dawned on me that I was actually numbering the three theological virtues (faith, hope, charity).

  2. Amen! 🙂 So simple even a child can understand, that’s the kind of amazing love God shows us each and every day. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
