Less Really Is More

You have to read this post by Joshua, “Less Is More”.

Man. I’m so challenged by this. I talk a lot of changing the world. I talk of living simply. I talk of prioritising people and relationships above things. I talk of giving it all away. I talk of laying down my life.

I talk a lot.

And yet there is such a dichotomy between what I say and what I do.

Longbrake challenges me so much. Thank you, Longbrake, for the reminder to live what I say, to pursue integrity.

“I am in the right place. If being in Seattle at Mars Hill means losing all my things then so be it. I have gained more than I have lost. I believe that it is true that less is more. To lose is to gain.”
