Simple Things in Life

“I am a single cell animal”
“I like to live a simple life”
There is wisdom to these remarks. Don’t you think?
Is life supposed to be complicated?
“I have to do these.”  “I have to have these.”, ” I really really need these.”
 Look around you, you have acquired so much staffs you don’t even know you have them.
What you need is room,….space to think, live and enjoy.
Have you ever consider the “simple joy” in life?
A glass of water.
A smile of a baby
A drop of tears for others
A word of encouragement.
Stooping down to appreciate a dandelion.
A  word of gratitude.
A walk with someone you love at the park
A phone call from someone you miss
An afternnon spent in solitude.
The list can go on and on .
So, why make things complicated?
Why engage in things that brings so much trouble into your life?
Live simply, but shun from being “simple minded”
Listen to what “Proverbs” says:
Wisdom calls aloud in the street,
she raises her voice in the public squares;
 at the head of the noisy streets she cries out,
in the gateways of the city she makes her speech:
 “How long will you simple ones  love your simple ways?
How long will mockers delight in mockery
and fools hate knowledge?
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
