The Discipline of Simplicity

Matthew 6: 25 – 33

I. Covetousness is Slavery

II. Simplicity is Freedom

A. Inward Reality of Simplicity

1. To receive what we have as a gift from God

2. To know that it is God’s business, and not ours, for what we have

3. To have our good available to others.

B. Outward Expression of Simplicity

1. Buy things for their Usefulness rather than their Status

2. Reject anything that is producing an addiction in you

3. Learn to enjoy things without owning them

4. Develop a deeper appreciation for the Creation
