From Sunday School yesterday we had the idea that you can have a complicated life yet still practice the spiritual discipline of simplicity. The simplicity derives from the simple preoccupation on the one thing that matters. Love the Lord you God with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind. And love your neighbor as yourself. If we turn our minds to that thought over and over again, then our lives can appear complicated but they will flow out of a simplicity of thought and purpose.
