Reasons To Simplify:
1. God doesn’t want distractions of this world to get in the way of our relationship with Him.
“Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus…” Hebrews 12:1-2
2. God wants us to store our treasures in Heaven, not here on earth.
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:20-21
3. We are to seek first His righteousness.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33
4. God wants us to fill our minds up on Him and not earthly desires.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8
5. God wants our undivided devotion.
“I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you, but that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord. “ 1 Corinthians 7:35
6. Simplifying is a discipline.“Rather he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined.” Titus 1:8
