All you need to do is say “Yes” if you mean “Yes” and “No” if you mean “No.”  – Mt 5:37

Reflection.  Many self-help groups teach their members to keep it simple.  No fancy stuff.  No spin.  No denial.  Webster’s Dictionary defines the word “simple” as being free from guile and deception.  Yes or No.

Prayer.  Keep me, Lord, from being cunning.  Teach me how to keep it simple.
