spoiling spirituality

eventually it's coming down
Again, I am going to reference my pastor....  he was talking about how we spoil spirituality by making things too religious.  Too pious.  Fraught with traditions and doctrines.

We make it wear funny clothes, we write long prayers, we think that it has to be complicated to be spiritual.  We build 10 story houses of cards with our spiritual life.  It is unnecessary and unsustainable.

We make it too complicated.

What if we remember that spirituality is simple.  Wake up in the morning and say "thank you."  There is no better prayer.  Step outside into God's world and say "WOW!"  Feel the thank you and the WOW.  Reach into the life of every person that you meet.  Thank you.  WOW.  Love.  God expects no more of us than this.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
