Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God. (Ronald Reagan, 40th U.S. president)
Could these be the “5 rules for success”? It’s difficult to live simply in 21st century America. Life is so complicated, and it demands more of practically everything. We should learn how to love better and to care more for others. Sadly, there is very little kindness in today’s rhetoric. Reagan was right, if we lived this way, God could certainly more easily bless and use us.
The lips of the godly speak helpful words . . . The heart of the godly thinks carefully before speaking. (Proverbs 10:32; 15:28)
