“Let’s just do whatever is easiest.”

These words are ice water in my veins. Often when we hear them, they’re spoken out of laziness, a self-centered unwillingness to do something worthwhile for others. Other times what people are trying to say is “let’s make it simple.”

Don’t get me wrong…I’m all about simplicity. I’m a minimalist. I’m not about “show,” opulence, or extravagance. But I am about being hospitable, generous, courteous, and gracious.

Simple is elegant. Easy is sloppy.

Anything worth doing is worth doing well…and nothing worth doing is “easy.” It takes planning…it takes effort…it takes energy…it takes participation of your body and spirit.
