“Better a little with the fear of the Lord than great wealth with turmoil.”
Is less really more? Most probably yes, if you consider that there is Joy in simplicity of life.
To say the least, events that lead up to a ‘black Friday” shopping frenzy for the holidays to place gifts under the Christmas tree can be exhausting. This includes a mad rush for purchasing the latest gadgets or fashion trends. But we all know that worldly wealth does not form true happiness. Rather, enjoying a favorite pastime of winter can well up in one’s heart with a lasting joy only Christ can give. We can thank God for his beautiful creation.
“Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains; for the Lord has comforted his people and will have mercy upon his afflicted.”
Day in and day out, let us aim for Joy in Simplicity.
