Kelly Johnson, an engineer with Lockheed Martin in the 1950s, created a design model called K.I.S.S. — Keep It Simple Stupid. While the wording seems harsh to us today, it is a basic principle we can learn from. He sought to influence other engineers not to complicate things more than they needed to be. The simplest design is usually the best.

Throughout history, Christians have complicated faith in many ways. In Galatians 5:14 Paul gives it to us “simple.” What does the Christian life look like at its simplest? Love your neighbor as yourself.

Could it be that simple? Surely there is more!

When someone is different from you — love. When someone disagrees with you — love. When someone seems unlovable — love. We want that for ourselves, right?

Love your neighbor as yourself.
