Simple Doesn’t Mean Easy

Just because something is simple doesn’t mean it is easy

Simple directions to a gas grille…never easy…

Simplifying things for people…may make them easier to understand…

But won’t make them easy…

You can simplify the terms or the make the process seem easy to follow…

But nothing of any great quality is ever really easy…

You can have a simple diet plan, but following it won’t be easy…

You can simplify for someone how they should train to run a marathon, but it won’t be easy…

I can even give you some simple principles to improve your marriage, your parenting or your leadership, (I try to do that every day) but they won’t be easy…

Becoming a mature follower of Christ…a disciple…I can tell you how to do that in fairly simple terms…I try to do that when I preach and teach…

Just remember…

Simple doesn’t mean easy…

Help this post: Name one thing that sounds simple, but isn’t easy…

  1. Great stuff Ron. I try to teach my students this exact principle all the time. Christianity is simple but not easy. Life, school and work can be made simple but they are not easy. Everything worth having will cost you something.

    Thanks for the great words Ron. I appreciate them!

  2. I'm so feeling you man. I love the bottom line, the simple "what is expected" language. That' s really the only one I speak. But, you are so right, that doesn't mean it's easy, but at when it's simple I know how to measure a win.
