DAY 28 FRIDAY: DECEMBER 2018

HAVE A SIMPLE LIFESTYLE!

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).

A Christian should desire to have a simple lifestyle. A life of simplicity is a life of maturity full of wisdom and humility. God wants us as Christians to live a simple life. In the opening text, the writer of the book of Hebrews said that let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. God has promised never to leave nor forsake you. If God is with you, you are forever covered (Romans 8:31). Every Christian should desire to have a simple lifestyle and be content with God’s provision.

When you have a simple lifestyle, you will be contented and freed from covetousness. When you are freed from covetousness, you will be satisfied with what you have and with the blessings of God in your life. That is why Apostle Paul says in 1 Timothy 6:6, “Now godliness with contentment is great gain.” A Christian should never compete with anyone but to trust God’s sufficiency in his life. A life of godliness is a life lived with a simple lifestyle and to the glory of God in the highest.

A life of simplicity is a life of humility. Anyone who humbles himself will always receive grace and favor from God. That is the reason why the Bible tells us in 1 Peter 5:5, “Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for ‘God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” A life of simplicity attracts God’s favor and grace for exultation. Therefore, all Christians should desire to live a simple lifestyle and be clothed in God’s humility.

Daily Tip: A Christian should have a simple lifestyle and be contented with God’s blessings for his life. Shalom!

Golden Text: And He said to them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses (Luke 12:15).
