Seeking to glorify God in all we do. Sitting at the Lord's feet to learn as a follower of Jesus. Saying the Our Father/Lord's prayer daily, as well as the Jesus Creed, and seeking to live that creed out. Not getting too taken up with the election here in the United States and politics beyond one's own calling, knowing that its importance is limited. Wanting to draw near to God and seeking to do so. Doing good to others, even if one can't do as much as one would like. Dealing with the plank in my eye, so I can see clearly to help my brother get the speck out of his eye.
Simplicity takes on many forms in Scripture and the Story of God we find in it. It takes interesting shape in such people as Abraham, Joseph, Ruth, Moses, Joshua, David, Daniel, Esther, John the Baptizer, Mary the mother of Jesus, Mary the sister of Martha (and surely Martha herself, later), the apostles Peter and John and Paul- and many others. To see Scripture and find our place in God's ongoing Story from it requires simplicity for us. In all things being integrated around the Jesus Creed, which is the first and great commandment, and the second like it.
Of course in Jesus there are many things needed. But it all centers "in Jesus" and we need to endeavor to be meeting God and all the issues of life in him. This simplifies everything in that we're not looking for the latest self-help book or therapy. We know we find the answers in Jesus and in Scripture, much good there for us, and we need it all. And we do so in community with God's people and in mission to the world- a part of God's design for us. But all from simplicity in Jesus before God with each other in and for this world.
