SIMPLE WORDS

Alina Kanaski

God, sometimes the things people say about you seem so abstract and formal—so many big words that are impossible to understand! But I know that is not what you want. You came to earth to be with people, to talk with us, to live with us. Your son Jesus spoke to us in parables, using simple words and stories to teach us about everyday life and about the tough stuff you wanted us to think about and to understand. You were accessible—and you still are. I know you want nothing more than to spend time with each and every one of us—including me. So even when I am confused by big words and big ideas, help me to remember that you want to be with me in my everyday life. Thank you for listening. Amen.
