God keeps things pretty simple for us. He’s aware of our capacity and our overload.
Recently I stumbled across an attempt to communicate the Ten Commandments to my children when they were little. After many years, re-reading this twenty-word summation caught my attention and captured my heart.
The Big, Top Ten in Twenty Words
- Love God
- Prioritize Him
- Honor Him
- Rest Well
- Respect Others – start with your parents
- Protect Life
- Value Family – begin with your spouse
- Take Nothing
- Be Honest
- Be Content
Rest comes to us in many ways. Keeping things simple and focused unclutters, and redefines.
How shall we live?
Rest assured, our Lord points the way.
