Bound

It must have been a hard thing for people with simple jobs to come up with the temple tax. It is quite remarkable that it is paid in the simple offering of a fish (Matthew 17:22-27). I think sometimes it is in simplicity where we find the deeper truths of life. Sometimes being faithful means plumbing out simplicity. The blades of grass all sparkle with droplets of rain and we hurry on by because signs of God's creation should be big. Yet here it lies in slowing down and seeing these simple drops and the beauty. They provide for life in the grass. Can we slow down and see deeply? What do you see?
