CHRIST OUR KING counsels a lifestyle of simplicity and trust. Look around you at the simple beauty and plenitude that God has so generously given; let go of the cultural inducements to “need” this, “need” that, endlessly buying in the temples of the economy. Live simply, trusting God to supply all our needs – in the “supplying,” God redefines our needs. As we learn to trust God’s generosity in this kingdom of God, we will learn to be generous ourselves.
