A show about Thoughtfulness
Simplicity can be understood as a means of being freed from some of the unnecessary attachments to the things of this life, a means to set our minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
Jesus told us that our heart is where our treasure is, therefore it’s wise to examine what we consider our true treasure to be.
Whenever a person says to me: “My problem is that I do not love the Lord enough,” I usually respond: “No … your problem is that you do not know how much the Lord loves you.” —Selwyn Hughes (1928–2006)
We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thoughts. —A. W. Tozer (1897–1963)
Once we recognize that simple “life maintenance” can chip away at our time in such huge blocks, we will see how vital it is that we don’t busy ourselves in vain.
We must invest our treasure wisely so that we obtain the best return in health, success, happiness, giving freely to those in need of God’s love.
“Contentment is one of the flowers of heaven, and if we would have it, it must be cultivated. … Paul says, ‘I have learned to be content, [suggesting that] he did not know how at one time. It cost him some pains to attain to the mystery of that great truth.”—Charles Spurgeon (1834–1892)
