2 Corinthians 1

2 Corinthians 1:12
We behaved in the world with simplicity and godly sincerity.

We can spend so much time scrolling Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter—peering into the lives of others because we are too bored with our own. The mundane tasks that scream for our attention don’t seem nearly as compelling as the latest thread or the vacation pics of a person we barely know. There’s just something gratifying, though, in getting the latest scoop. But, before you know it, we’re swimming in data, waterlogged with everybody’s thoughts but our own. Verse 12, however, calls us back to life. Our life. A life that’s not cluttered with every voice, opinion, and cause under heaven. It calls us to live in the moment, to take one step in front of the other. It might not be fast, it might not be flashy, but it’s desperately what our soul requires. Contentment.
