And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you?
He requires only that you fear the LORD your God,
and live in a way that pleases him,
and love him and serve him with all your heart and soul.
And you must always obey the LORD’s commands
and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good.
~ Deuteronomy 10:12-13
Simplify Your Life
Running around in circles
Chasing rules that never seem to end
Holding tight to expectations
Letting life wear you down
Burning out trying to live by the Law
Is God that hard to please?
Are you frustrated by requirements?
Trying so hard to be good
Relax, rest, renew
God knows the flesh and the heart
Perfection will never be gained
His expectations are more simple than that
Fear Him for who He is
Creator of the universe, beginning and the end
Love Him before all others
Stand in awe of His Holy name
Live in a way that pleases Him
Following His word not the world
Give love, mercy, grace, forgiveness
Focus on the eternal prize
Love the Lord with all your heart
Let Him love you in return
Share His love with all you encounter
Be the light He created you to be
Serve Him heart and soul
Set your goals upon the Kingdom
Put others before yourself
Love others like you have never loved before
Obey His commands
These three remain: faith, hope, love
Encompassing all the laws in only one word
