Acts 2:42-47 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need. So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.
So this was one of our verses today in our Sunday school class. As we read it and talked about it the one word that jumped out at me was “simplicity” in Acts 2:46. As I read this the word jumped out at me as a problem we (me included) have today in that we want so much we have forgotten what it is to have a “simplicity of heart” for God. We want what we want and don’t worry about what others “need” because we might have to “sacrifice” something.
Simplicity, I like this definition: “restraint in ornamentation”. Are you restraining from ornamentation? Or do you want beyond “simplicity”?
