A Simple Life

Finding a way to live the simple life is one of life’s supreme complications. (T. S. Eliot, one of the 20th century’s major poets)

You may have neighbors whose religious convictions call for living a simple life. It may be difficult, but they do without telephones, automobiles, and electricity. What about the rest of us? We don’t have to give up modern conveniences necessarily, but learning to do with less simplifies daily life. Living more simply would undoubtedly do us good.

I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is . . . with plenty or little. (Philippians 4:11-12)
