Simon only appears in Scripture in 4 places, but his nick-name speaks volumes of his dedication to his faith. Called a zealot, this would indicate his life was pious… no, not full of sweet fruit filled desserts with a crispy flaky crust that has you going back for more and more. We’re talking about dedication and devotion, that’s piety. We’re not trying to create tradition or a guilt driven actions, but learning that life can be full when we commit ourselves to practices that draw us closer to God.
