Magazines, commercials, books, and Pinterest boards have tons of advice for leading a simple life. Magazine headlines scream at us: "Tips for Doing It All!" "10 Organizing Secrets!" "3 Must-Have Cleaners!" "5 Easy Weeknight Meals!" They promise the secrets to a simple, organized, contented life. But it doesn't take long to realize that all their tips and tricks just leave us with more to do, buy, and long for. It does anything but make us content.
But maybe the simple life doesn't have anything to do with stuff. Perhaps God's Word holds the only secret to the simple life that we need.
