Simplifiing Life

Last night at church, out college pastor Adam Barnett talked about ways to simplify your life in our overly complex, digitally centered world. I thought the list was thoughtful and well done, so I figured I would post it here for you all to see.

  1. Buy things for their usefulness rather than their status.
  2. Avoid anything that is producing addiction in you.
  3. Develop a habit of giving things away.
  4. Refuse getting the newest gadget.
  5. Enjoy things without owning them.
  6. Develop a deeper appreciation for Creation.
  7. Don’t buy now to own later.
  8. Use honest speech.
  9. Reject anything that causes the oppression of others.
  10. Rid you life of anything preventing your from seeking The Lord first.
