I know some people who make things so complicated (sometimes I do, too). I first heard the phrase "Keep it simple stupid" in my 7th grade Algebra class. Mr. Owens shared this "KISS approach" to us to help solve those seemingly complicated math problems.
Whether trying to figure out what seems to be a complex math problem or a major life struggle, the simple approach is always best.
Complicated doesn't work. Stress doesn't help. Worry is a sin.
Are you struggling financially? Give. Does your mind wander? Focus.
Are you having problems loving people? Receive God's love for you.
See! Simple works best. No need to summon a 900-year old guru and start chanting. Just change.
For example, receiving God's love may sound complicated or even overwhelming. Where do I begin? What do I study? What should I pray? Etc.
Here's what to do - take Him at His word. You'll receive His love, you'd love yourself, and voila - you'd love others.
Michael, is it really that simple?
Recently at church, I was asked to read aloud a passage from a certain book written by a famed man of God, and one line read, "Stop trying to believe the word and just obey it."
Like Jim Rohn once asked, "What if that's true?" What if that'll work?
Then it's simple.
