The attractiveness of simplicity

Morning: Psalms 56, 57; Genesis 41:46-57; I Corinthians 4:8-20

The stories of Jesus’s early followers are attractive in their simplicity … he calls his disciples, appoints them to proclaim his message and to cast out demons; then he goes home! Paul writes about the rigours of his life: “We are fools for the sake of Christ … when reviled, we bless; when persecuted, we endure; when slandered, we speak kindly. Maybe we’re just hearing the bare bones of the actual events … but the stories’ simple messages are compelling … Invite commitment; live in Love; overcome evil with good; bless those who mistreat you; persevere; and, be kind.
