Genius is the ability to reduce the complicated to the simple. (C.W. Ceran, 20th century German journalist)

By itself, that’s a good illustration of the principle. More than a few wives will remember the times their husbands “knew exactly where they were going” on an auto trip. After a long time and the reluctant admission that “we’re lost,” he finally stops to ask directions. The era of GPS has, for the most part, made complex directions very simple. How grateful we are!

When people do not accept divine guidance, they run wild. But whoever obeys the law is joyful. (Proverbs 29:18)
