Living a Simple and Quiet Christian Life | Alex Wilson
I ran into this video earlier and I could not get it off my mind. It's a great video on how our pride, our ego, our need for recognition, leads us away from the simple and quiet life, and into a life of stress and anxiety.
Here are some of my takeaways:
- Trying to promote yourself or your work online only leads to more stress.
- Chasing after accolades, recognition, views, likes, hearts means you're not free.
- Jesus had the simple and quiet life because he was so humble and he had no pride. He rejected popularity.
- You don't need to give up on your hobbies/activities to live a simple and quiet life. You just need to stop promoting yourself while engaging in said hobbies/activities.
