In our modern age, simplicity has become confusing to many and not sought after.
One of the things I come across a lot, is the confusion many Noahides have over living a Noahide life. It seems that the simplicity confuses them.
There are 7 basic instructions to live by; they are categorical, meaning there are many sub-instructions under each one – like the Prohibition of murder would contain instructions about committing personal injury – Prohibition of theft would contain instruction about property damages and so on it goes.
But all in all it is really a simple, ethicical, moral and Godly way of life the way the Creator had wanted us to live from the start.
Here is an example I just went through last week.
A co-worker had lost some money at work. I joined in to help her find it. We did not locate it and she made a statement about someone getting a blessing this weekend. I went on to tell her that the Creator does not bless someone from another persons loss. That the loss and the find was a test for each individual but the find was not a blessing.
This is living a simple Godly life. We do not have to have rituals and rites to live the what the Creator intended for us.
A Matter Of Perception
The 7 Noahide Laws is noted to contain six prohibitions and one positive commandment.
This has caused turmoil in many folks. It really is a matter of perception.
When someone hears the word ‘prohibition’ it becomes a negative thought in their mind instead of a positive thought.
Every prohibition given to us by the Creator is full of things we get to do for Him and humanity.
For example, the Prohibition of theft lets you learn how to treat what God gave others. The Prohibition of murder lets us explore the celebration of life. The Prohibition of idolatry, lets us seek and find the One True God and Creator and learn how to build a proper relationship with Him.
Even though our 7 Laws are simple does not mean they are not packed full of opportunity.
