We used to say K.I.S.S – Keep it Simple Stupid until stupid was an “S” word (see previous post). Keeping it simple can sometimes be the most difficult thing. It’s like writing, at times we write the most complex drivel because we think it makes us seem smarter. What is so great about being smarter than the average bear?
Yesterday I mentioned that John Ragsdale (see www.johnragsdale.com) was with us on Saturday (YEAH for Saturday church). He said something so simple that was so cool. He said Jesus came in a manger so everyone could get to Him. Anyone can come to the manger. If Jesus had been born in a palace there would have been politics, rituals and rules to follow in order to get to Him. But a manger….that’s where they keep the animals. Christianity is really pretty simple; accept the gift of Jesus.
