I have made chocolate chip cookies for years. They are a family favorite. Recently, a friend shared her family recipe with me. The simplicity of it was amazing.
My old recipe had a million different ingredients the were mixed in a certain order and at a set speed on the machine. In contrast, this new recipe was simple and hand stirred. People raved over the new cookies.
Sometimes, I think we need to take it back to basics. Stop with all the new gadgets, the best and the newest inventions. Look around, fashion has gone overboard, communication has changed so much that very little communicating is done, cities are built bigger and higher and the beauty of nature is missed.
Just like it doesn’t take fancy equipment and ingredients for good chocolate chip cookies, our life can be just as wonderful, if not better, without all the gadgets and gizmos. We only need one thing… Jesus told us in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Jesus is all we need, He is our life and He cares for every detail if our life”. We should look to find simplicity in our lives and we will find a new life, a better life.
