So often the act of simplifying is seen as something that would be nice to do. An added bonus to life if we had the time squeeze it in. Is it? Or is the need to simplify truly a deep spiritual need?
We Christians must simplify our lives or lose untold treasures on earth and in eternity. Modern civilization is so complex as to make the devotional life all but impossible. The need for solitude and quietness was never greater than it is today.
A. W. Tozer
Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
