We often read the Bible for application, inspiration, or direction. However, there are times when the author wants to simply point the reader to a big idea—an idea that fits with God's grand story. In the Gospel of Mark, we read about Peter's experience with Jesus that led Peter to believe in one big idea: the kingdom of God is near, and everyone is invited to participate.
We often think that the answer to any problem in life is more. More money. More time. More Netflix. But, as many of us have learned the hard way, there are times when getting more leads to a host of other problems we didn’t foresee. In those moments, the old saying “less is more” is true. In this series, we look at several areas of life where less really is more.
