Genesis 1:26-31a (CEB)

26 Then God said, Let us make humanity in our image to resemble us so that they may take charge of the fish of the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the earth, and all the crawling things on earth.”


God created humanity in God’s own image,

        in the divine image God created them,

            male and female God created them.

28 God blessed them and said to them, Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and master it. Take charge of the fish of the sea, the birds in the sky, and everything crawling on the ground.” 29 Then God said, I now give to you all the plants on the earth that yield seeds and all the trees whose fruit produces its seeds within it. These will be your food. 30 To all wildlife, to all the birds in the sky, and to everything crawling on the ground—to everything that breathes—I give all the green grasses for food.” And that’s what happened. 31 God saw everything he had made: it was supremely good.

Each day until Easter you will receive a daily Bible verse, a weekly devotional, questions and challenges, as well as other interactive elements, and a short video devotional. These tools will help you on your quest for a simple life.


Shalom is when the image of God is recognized, protected and cultivated in every single human.

Shalom is having right relationship between God, ourselves, others humans, and even creation.

Adam and Eve enjoyed Shalom. We came to through Jesus Christ. He’s calling us away from our chaotic lives and toward something Simple.

  2. What areas of your life are NOT whole in spirit, soul and body?
