“The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.” — Paulo Coelho (Brazilian novelist who wrote ‘The Alchemist,’ born 1947)
You know, the most extraordinary aspect of the Bible for me is on one had how complex it seems to be, and on the other, how simple it seems to be. And, the opposite is also true. Matters which, on one hand, seem quite simple, on the other it is so very complex and … extraordinary.
When you need food and clothing, seek first the kingdom of God; love your enemies; if you want to be perfect, sell everything and give the money to the poor; whoever is the least will be the greatest.
Pure wisdom, simple messages, but oh so complex when you try to live up to it! Are you wise enough to see it?
