Easy vs. Simple

The older I get, the more I see a peculiar dichotomy.

Life becomes more and more complicated, because:

  • Pat answers don’t fit anymore.

  • People are more complex than I’d ever imagined.

  • Situations are more tangled than I could even believe possible.

Yet life also becomes more and more simple, because as my understanding of God expands, I see that:

  • His knowledge is deeper than all the pat answers in the world – he is Wisdom.

  • His salvation extends to every soul in need – he is Love.

  • His power is sovereign over all the mess we make of our lives – he is Grace.

Perhaps a part of maturity is to come to the realization that life will never be easy – but that as we trust God more and more, it can become simple again.
