Episode 6: The Discipline of Simplicity
/

Hosts: Tommy Bridges and John Fugh, Jr.

In This Episode: What’s controlling you? Are you content with being a child of God? Foster defines the Discipline of Simplicity as “an inward reality that results in an outward lifestyle … We deceive ourselves if we believe we can possess the inward reality without its having a profound effect on how we live. To attempt to arrange an outward lifestyle of simplicity without the inward reality leads to deadly legalism.” Our lust for status in things produces within us anxiety and worry. Three inward attitudes that produce in us that outward reality of how we live: (1) What we have we receive as a gift from God, (2) What we have is cared for by God, (3) What we have is available to others.
