Not Enough or Too Much?

Proverbs 30:1-9

What is the balance between not enough, and too much? Sometimes I’m not so sure we know the difference. In fact, if you were to go out and ask your neighbors and those you meet in the grocery store or on the street, how much more they would need to be content, most would probably say “at least a little bit more.” We are never satisfied. We never feel like we have enough.

While there are certainly instances where we desperately need God to intervene on our behalf, many times our desire for more is just that—a desire for more than we currently have. But God has asked us to find a space of contentment. Is it possible to find joy no matter how much or how little we have? What if we began to ask God to give us simply enough for today and stopped worrying about how much we will have tomorrow?

Author and activist Maya Angelou once said, “we need much less than we think we need.” Rather than focusing on all the things you do not have, try being grateful for your needs that have already been taken care of today.
