We are into tea these days….freshly brewed iced tea.  My husband has starting making sun tea. It is so good, and so simple.

When you think about it, we can learn so much from that sun tea.  I asked my husband the recipe and he said, “Water and tea bags. Put it in the sun and wait.”

The key is, that it is not instantaneous
. In order to reach its optimum taste, you must let it sit awhile. Soaking in the sun.

You don’t have to add a thing to it. You can add a few extras like lemon or honey if you like, but it doesn’t really need it.

So many things these days get cluttered up by trying to make life easier or better…
but in order to do so we must add things, follow a bunch of steps,
 and in the end we just make life more complicated.

Sun tea. Nothing added. Lots of patience. Waiting. Soaking up the sun.

Just like our relationship with the Lord. We don’t need to add a thing to it. It’s all right there in His Word. It doesn’t need fancy extras.

His Truth is beautiful just as it is.
 And it’s enough. 
Just as it is.

If we sit and be patient and fill up on the Son (like the tea in the sun….) we have enough. 

Letting His Light penetrate us. 
Fill us. 
Just Him.
It is enough.

Yes, there is a lesson in a simple jar of brewed tea.

So simple. Yet so beautiful.
