Luke 9:3 (MSG) - He said, “Don’t load yourselves up with equipment. Keep it simple; you are the equipment.”
Do you ever wonder why we put so much on our plates before we travel? There is always much to do, ensuring the pets are cared for, things at home and work are in order, shopping, getting your hair done (yes, this applies to men and women) and many other things we add to our list to escape for five days of rest. Some of these tasks are necessary but many are unnecessary.
Yep, I would be the first to confess, I have paid overweight charges. I keep stating, this should not be this complicated? The best advice that I apply now is “keep it simple silly or keep it simple sweetie aka KISS.” It seems we unnecessarily complicate and burden our lives when keeping things simple is the key.
Today’s verse is a reminder to not load yourselves up with equipment. Keep it simple; you are the equipment. Enough said. Keep it simple! I encourage you to read all of Luke 9.
Thank you for the reminder to keep things simple. No need to load myself up with equipment. To keep it simple because I am the equipment. I pray that all your children keep things simple. That they realize there is no need to load themselves with equipment because they are the equipment. I ask this in your son Jesus’ name. Amen!
