The pursuit of simplicity…perhaps the most difficult of all pursuits. A phrase we often use in our home is one we heard a long time ago on a podcast and was used by Dallas Willard, “…you need to ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life.”
This phrase has been a bit of a game changer in our attitudes and has spilled over into many aspects of our lives as we have tried, with great difficulty at times, to do this and instead live a simpler, more intentional life. A constant balance which at times in a modern culture, is so difficult to get right.
It is worth the pursuit though and is probably a life long commitment!
