Window Sign on Simplicity

Simplicity is the right ordering of our lives,
placing God at the center.
When we shed possessions, activities, and behavior
that distract us from that center,
we can focus on what is important.
Simplicity does not mean denying life’s pleasures,
but being open to the promptings of the Spirit.

Sometimes I think the Simplicity Testimony is the hardest to live in developed nations where everything is geared toward consumption and overwork/lack of sleep.

So, naturally, it can become the Testimony to avoid thinking about.

Thanks for posting about it.

You will say Christ saith this, and the apostles say this,
but what canst thou say?

Art thou a child of Light and hast thou walked in the Light,
and what thou speakest is it inwardly from God?

Tiré du blog de notre soeur

La simplicité est la façon d’ordonner nos vies, en plaçant Dieu au centre de notre vie

Lorsque les illusions de la vie nous distraient du Centre, nous devons retourner vers l’important.

La simplicité ne signifie nullement dénier les plaisirs de la vie,
mais de rester ouvert à L’Esprit qui agit dans ce monde.

Vous dites, le Christ a dit ceci, et les apôtres ont dit cela,
Mais que peux-tu dire ?

Es tu un Fils de la Lumière et marches-tu dans la Lumière,
entends-tu Dieu qui te parle dans ton for intérieur ?
