The other night when I was with some friends, a common theme we shared was that we all felt really busy. It reminded me of something I read on simplicity a couple of years ago.
“For many people, simplifying means nothing more than ‘doing less.’ But simplifying is not so much about doing fewer things as it is about doing the right things.” — Donald Whitney, Simplify Your Spiritual Life, p13.
I liked this perspective because I have found it to be true. God promises to give us more responsibility as we prove ourselves faithful in smaller things. So I can expect my responsibilities to multiply as I prove myself a faithful leader.
I have been reading Taking Back Your Life and I am trying to live my life more by the right things and investing in the things of most significance.
