Don’t you just love it when things are simple and easy. God seems to have designed that in to so many of the things He created or the things that He wanted us to do. For example, He created all the perfect and simple food we as humans needed to eat to stay healthy and strong. He gaves us vegetables, fruits, healthy fats, and proteins to eat in a balanced fashion to help us to thrive physically. Yet, in our sinful nature we come along and make things more complicated and we decide to mass produce foods that require genetic engineering, preservatives, additives and other processing to make it. All of which is turning out to be very fattening and unhealthy for us. When it comes to food, simple is better. He even made salvation a simple matter. We just simply need to believe that Jesus is God in the flesh and that He died for our sins and that He rose from the dead and now sits at the right hand of the Father. Then we come along as humans and complicate the message. Some groups make works a requirement to be saved. Some make a religious belief system the requirements for being saved. All these religious groups have complicated what God made so simple.
These things we do as humans to complicate matters really show we are very simple minded. In other words as humans as the online dictionary puts it we are “Lacking in subtlety or sophistication; artless or naïve, stupid or silly; foolish.” We are foolish when we make things more complicated than need be. Yet, even God knows our simple mindedness and provides us with s simple solution to make us wise. He gave us His word to make the simple wise. Read Psalm 19: 7-
“The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;”
Jesus is the Word. He gave us Jesus as the first step to becoming wise. Then just learning the Word through the studying of the Bible will further the process of becoming wise. What an easy system. God makes things so simple for us. Wisdom can be simple and can make wise the simple.
