1 Corinthians 7:30 Keep it simple—in marriage, grief, joy, whatever. Even in ordinary things—your daily routines of shopping, and so on. Deal as sparingly as possible with the things the world thrusts on you. (The Message Bible)
There is something called the K.I.S.S. theory regarding public speaking. It stands for Keep It Simple Stupid. We generally live in a culture which claims that more complex is better. We want things faster, newer, with more options. We have hundreds of connections on social media to show us pictures of their meals. Since we can do more, we are expected to do more, by employers and family and friends. But are people satisfied with the quality of their relationships? Do we find purpose and meaning in the many things that occupy us? Are we more often focused on what we need to do next rather than what we are doing at the moment? Simplifying life runs the risk of boredom perhaps. We may feel out of step with those around us. The question is, is there something that will fill the empty space? Maybe even God? How will we ever know if we don’t try?
