Keep It Simple

This might sound harsh, but it’s true:

Most people won’t change the world.

Most people will go through life in defense mode. Afraid to step outside of their comfortable routines. Afraid of failure. Afraid of the unknown.

Longing for a fuller life… a wider impact… a deeper joy…

… but too terrified to climb outside the boat, and actually lay hold of those things.

And so —

Keep It Simple

Whoosh!

True life will sail right past them, like a ship in the night.

Of course…

A few people will change the world.

… because a few people will decide to do whatever it takes to live a full, faith-filled life. Despite what the critics have to say. Despite their own doubts. Despite their having no idea where to start. Despite the gnawing fear inside of them that keeps on saying,

Keep It Simple

“STOP!”

Keep It Simple

“SLOW DOWN!”

Keep It Simple

“TOO HARD!”

… and *these* are the ones who will arrive at a fuller life. And have a wider impact. And taste a deeper joy.

So my question for you is:

Keep It Simple

Which kind of life will YOU choose?
