Life Is Complicated

Life Principles Are Simple

by Lee Delbridge



Life is complicated but life principles are simple therefore focus on the principles. Here are some examples.


Money: Always have more money coming in than going out. Search for ways to increase your income and decrease you expenses. Make money your servant, not your master. Money comes from work not from other people, luck or the government. You earn money by providing other people with “things” they want or need. 


Debt: No debt.  Make very few exceptions. When you do make an exception, pay it off as soon as possible.


Health: My physician promotes the following: “Fruits - Vegatables - Water - Exercise - Rest.”  Eat lots of fruits and vegatables. Drink lots of water. Get a lot of exercise and rest. You only have one body. Take care of it. 


Life Purpose: Discover, develop and live your life purpose.  You discover you life purpose by knowing your SHAPE. SHAPE is an acrostic that stands for Spiritual Gifts, Heart (Passion), Abilities (things, information or people), Personality and Experience.  God wants to use you the way He made you. Discover your purpose and allow that purpose to guide, direct and control your life. Live the life God intended you to live and you will be happy and fulfilled. Be purpose driven. Don’t allow other people, no matter how well intentioned, to control your life. 


Education: A formal education will help you make a living. Self education will make you a fortune. Learn what you need to know to fulfill your life purpose. Be a life long learner. You need to know a little about a lot of things and a lot about your special area. Know a little about a lot and a lot about a little. 


Priorities: (1) God, (2) Family, (3) Job/Career, (health, money, social, recreation, etc.).  It is always a struggle to live your priorities. Something or someone is always trying to take first place in your life.


Responsibility:  God is totally sovereign and you are totally responsible for your life. Although these ideas seem to contradict they are both true. The Bible teaches both. God is in control and you are responsible for your life. You are responsible for your own life. Stop blaming others. 


Think: We all do stupid things from time to time. Think before you act. Think about what you may need later and get it in advance. Spend time every day just thinking about ways to fulfill your life purpose and reach your goals. Write those ideas down. 


Life is complicated. There is no question about it.  But life principles are simple. Focus on the simple life principles and that will help you deal with life’s complications.
