Some people brought children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples scolded them. When Jesus noticed this, he was angry and said to his disciples, “Let the children come to me and do not stop them, because the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Mark 10:13-14
Simple is just to be simple. Simple is not same as easy and easy is also not the same as simple. We use to save our money in the banks and our valuable in the safe and this is nothing simple, instead it is complicated.
Jesus said, “Do not store up riches for yourselves here on earth, where moths and rust destroy and robbers break in and steal. Instead, store up riches for yourselves in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and robbers cannot break in and steal.” Matthew 6:19-20.
This is the method that our Lord Jesus Christ teaches us to store up our riches. The safest and wisest way with interest as much as a hundred, others sixty and other thirty fold.
Hearing this, we all felt that this is something not simple but very difficult, because we all really do not know and understand the secret behind it. In order to be rich earthly and spiritually, let us store up our love, kindness, concern and compassion in this heavenly bank so that the secret of simplicity would be revealed making us simple people yet rich people.
In fact, to be simple is nothing simple and not easy nor difficult. To assure you, simple people is actually the happiest people, God’s people.
Let us be like children, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these, simple people.
