The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry
Part 4 - Simplicity
Session 4: Simplicity
Every session has a point—what each participant should walk away from the discussion knowing, feeling, and doing.
Main Idea: Cultivating simplicity will give us the margin to receive the love of God and, in turn, give that love to the people around us.
Head Change: To know that a life of giving is happier than a life of getting.
Heart Change: To feel less inclined to accumulate new things and more inclined to practice generosity.
Life Change: To limit our possessions and obligations to the point that we are free to live freely and joyfully in the kingdom with Jesus.
This study is a companion to the book The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry. However, for this study, we will not be reading the book together. It would be an excellent supplement for anyone wishing to do so.
