How would you explain this to an eight year old?

There is a great misunderstanding that deep Bible study is confusing. We sometimes think that the more complicated it is, the more spiritual it is. We speak of esoteric when the word deep would do. We confuse deep with muddy.

I have never been accused of being deep in any teaching I have ever done anywhere. People often say my teaching is practical, but never deep. I count that as a compliment. I have often heard teaching by others that some described as deep, but I thought was just confusing. I don’t know that the communicator intended that, but whether or not he did, the result is the same. Strive to be clear. Be satisfied with being simple.
