Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Jesus (Matthew 5.7)
- who are orphans
- who are affected by disease, especially HIV/AIDS and malaria
- who lack clean water
- who have not been shown mercy
It is about challenging one another to live simply, Christian.
My name is T.C. Judd, and these are my thoughts. My life has been impacted in two completely different ways by two completely different types of writers. With respect to simplicity, Leo Babauta of Zen Habits and Courtney Carver of Be More with Less have helped me to see the clutter and chaos that fills much of life and has challenged me to simplify. With respect to living the whole of the Christian life, Richard Stearns, in The Hole in Our Gospel, brought to my attention the immensity of the social crises facing our world today and challenged me to make a difference. Over time, I realized that the two blended well together–truly living a simple life (not a minimalist one by any means, in my case) as a vehicle for truly living a Christian life.
So that, in a nutshell, is what it is to live simply, Christian.
