Dear Amish Wisdom readers,
Each Friday this summer, I’m sharing ten things I’ve learned from the Amish. Please feel free to chime in with your own insights!
Enough is…enough. The Amish believe that setting limits on almost everything is one of the foundations of wisdom. They put the brakes on accumulation and all the distractions and complications that come with it. There’s a point, they believe, where enough is enough, especially if it interferes with what is truly important to them: faith, family, community.
Amish proverb: “We live simply so others may simply life.”
The Lesson: Consider scaling down. Buy less. And think twice about what you do purchase. In the upside down world of Christianity, living with less ends up giving you more.
