'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free 'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be, And when we find ourselves in the place just right, 'Twill be in the valley of love and delight. When true simplicity is gained, To bow and to bend we shan't be ashamed, To turn, turn will be our delight, Till by turning, turning we come 'round right.
Simple words to a simple song. Maybe it is to simple to be true. I don't think it is, but then maybe I am wrong.
Has God made life so complicated and His word so complicated that only the learned and wise among his creatures can understand?
I don't think so. Maybe we, each and every one of us are the problem. Maybe we make our lives way to complicated. Maybe we make God's word complicated, when it really is not.
Listen to the song, read the gospel of Christ. Is God's grace an impossible thing to understand without much learning? Is grace complicated or is it free?
Will only the much educated be saved? Will the poor and the simple attain to glory?
Just some simple questions.
