Boiling it Down

"Simple, clear purposes and principles give rise to complex and intelligent behavior. Complex rules and regulations give rise to simple and stupid behavior." --Dee Hock as quoted by David Allen in GTD.

I always like to simplify things as much as possible. 

Here's why I like simplicity:
1.  Simplicity makes everything more clear.
2.  Simplicity makes everything easier to communicate.
3.  Simplicity unleashes creativity.

When we don't get bogged down in layers of bureaucratic processes, we can be much more effective at anything we do -- from planning a family vacation to sharing God's love with the world.

The good news is really simple:  God loves us so much that he works to redeem us from our destructive ways through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
