Saying no to the boxes that steal our peace & freedom.

When society teaches that getting what we want is more important than doing what is right, injustice will prevail. Sometimes we need to forcefully say to our desires, “I ain’t doin’ it!” no matter how much they cry out for our compliance.

If you open your mind to every idea and suggestion that comes your way, you’ll be overwhelmed. Mental health requires discernment.

Freedom to do what we want can enslave us to desire. Freedom to do what’s right liberates us from desire’s domination.

All thoughts matter. Choose and embrace uplifting thoughts; refute and reject destructive ones.

Love chooses noncooperation with unethical, immoral, or evil thoughts, words, or behaviors, no matter the consequences.

Boxed thinking, boxed hearts, boxed politics, and boxed religion, challenge us to box against our boxes and break free.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
