Thought for the Day

Today I’ve been thinking about how we (humans) complicate things. Sometimes so much so that confusion reigns in situations that should be easy and simple.

Nothing else in nature makes things so complicated, life to many animals seem so much less complicated. My thoughts turn to the scripture in Matthew, where we are told not to worry about anything, and then it’s compared to the birds of the air who do not worry because they just live out a simple life and know that God will take care of them.

What can you do today to make life less complicated? Is there something that you just need to hand over to God or make a decision (however hard it may be) to stop, change or remove something to make your life less complicated? And when making decisions, or thinking about situations, take a moment to ‘uncomplicate’ the matter. Make it simple.

““Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:25-26‬ ESV
