Keep It Simple

Keep It SimpleFrom Clip.

We have been in Costa Rica for three months now. As I wrote in the last blog, the Lord is teaching us so much more than Spanish. I wrote the following in my journal on July 28, just a little over three weeks before we came to Costa Rica. At the time, I had no idea how needful these thoughts are for our lives as missionaries – as Christians.

As I think about my life as a Christian, husband, dad, missionary, etc., I realize that I need to keep things simple. So much of life is too complicated; we make it that way. It doesn’t have to be so. Here are some basic things I need to focus on in my life:

  • Love God with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength
  • Love others as I love myself
  • Trust God
  • Give Him my heart
  • Know God through His Word
  • Pray a lot
  • Be accountable to other Christian men
  • Focus on making disciples of all nations
