Less Equals More

What happens when less equals more?  When we sin less it yields more fellowship with God.  When we spend less on ourselves it yields more opportunities to give to others in need.  When we complain less it yields more opportunities speak life.  When we worry less it gives us more opportunities to experience the peace of God.  When we spend less time in our comfort zone it yields more opportunities to step out on faith.

Ultimately the less you look like yourself the more opportunities you have to look more like Christ.  Jesus the Christ often turned common logic upside down.  For instance, Jesus said:
  • Love your enemies
  • Pray for those who persecute you
  • Blessed those who hate you
You see when you look at life through the lens of Christ less equals more makes perfect sense.  In this Lenten season what are you willing to do, have, or give less of in order to look more like a disciple of Jesus the Christ?

Scripture Reference Matthew 5 (Sermon on the Mount)
