Life is Not as Complicated as You Think

I just turned 30, and what I have learned in 30 years is this.  

Life is hard and takes focus and... 

Life is not as complicated as the world wants you to think it is. 

The two statements may sound as if they contradict one another but they do not. 

It all comes down to this.  

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these." Mark 12:30-31

I am not saying now that I am 30 I have figured it all out.  Actually I have learned more this past year about how much I dont have anything figured out.  But, these two verses that Jesus shared with us, I can get my head around this.  

There are so many distractions around us and the world makes life complicated but when you try and live by these commandments it helps keep life simple.  Again life is not easy, but where we place our focus can make our life more simple.

What in your life seems to make things complicated and cluttered? 


  1. Can "my life" be an answer to that question. Good word, Ben. Thanks.

  2. Yes your life can be an answer to that. What do you think a person on the outside of Christianity looking in would say to this post?

  3. Thanks for such useful information; by the way I am pastor at Covenant Church at LA. Our church is looking for church management software. So we can be in touch with our people anywhere, anytime. One of my co worker suggested church management software . He said they provide very good software for congregation along with great customer support. Any information about them will be very helpful to take decision.
