It’s easy for us to spread joy and happiness when our lives has less clutter, less important things and a lot less complications. Even in a world full of distractions and many things to catch our attention, it’s possible to live a focused, simple life.
If you want to live a simple life. Here are some tips.
Focus on God’s purposes
Having a life without purpose is like driving a car without a steering wheel it’s going nowhere. Having the wrong purposes in life, is like driving a car with a steering wheel, but no sense of direction it’s bound to go to the wrong places.
The right purpose for living can only be found in God, who has given life to everything that is living. Since He’s the one who gave us life, He knows the best purpose for it. Which is to our benefit.
Jesus said in Matthew 22: 37-40 to love the Lord with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. The second is you shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang the Law.
Be Content With You Lot
In order for us to live a life focused on God’s purpose, it will help to be content with our lot of life, and be content with what God gives us. God gives us what we need for what he wants us to do.
In Philippians 4: 11-13 Paul says: I know what it is like to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.
Paul also encourages us to make it our goal to live quiet lives, minding our own business, working with our own hands, and not meddling in others’ affairs.
In today’s world Americans have become spoiled. In other countries people make $710 dollars a month. Could any American live off that a month? God takes very good care of us. We are blessed everyday. Most people ignore this fact.
