What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

Here's our family's very timely memory verse for the week:
2 Corinthians 10:5
We demolish arguments and every pretenstion that sets itself up against the knowledge of God and WE TAKE CAPTIVE EVERY THOUGHT TO MAKE IT OBEDIENT TO CHRIST.
(the caps are the part my kids will be doing)

Ron Cooney

Taking every thought captive to obedience in Christ isn't an easy thing to accomplish. I hope your kids see that being lived out in you as you expect it from them. My hunch is, "Yes."

One way we to help us tangibly take every thought captive is learning to hide God's word in our heart. It isn't always easy to hide God's word in our heart... especially when we have a hard time developing the discipline of putting it into our head.

What are some ways you hide God's word in your heart?
