How Is Much Enough? (1)

How Is Much Enough? (1)

‘…Life is not measured by how much you own.’ Luke 12:15 NLT

What does ‘the good life’ mean to you? Driving the fastest car? Owning the biggest house? Wearing the latest clothes and having the most prestigious job? God’s concept is very different. Jesus said, ‘Guard against…greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.’ G.K Chesterton said. ‘There are two ways to get enough. One is to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less and less.’ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn discovered this truth in a Soviet prison when his freedom, his friends, his home and his books were taken away. After months of solitude in Antarctica, Admiral Richard Byrd wrote, ‘I’m learning…a man can live profoundly without masses of things.’ What a great place to arrive at! Harold Sala writes, ‘People are possessed by possessions as no other generation…The more complex life becomes, the more convinced we are that we need more to be happy. Having obtained what we think we need, we soon become unhappy because a model with more bells and whistles comes out…It takes far less than we think to discover happiness if [it] comes from within and we break the stranglehold things have on our lives.’ So, how much is enough? Jesus told the rich young ruler who wrestled with that question, ‘…Sell your possessions…give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow Me’ (Matthew 19:21 NIV). Not the answer expected! Does that mean God is opposed to you having money? No, He’s just against anything taking His place in your life! He knows that ‘Your heart will be where your treasure is’ (Matthew 6:21 NCV)

Soul Food Reading: Lev 21:1-23:25 Mt 6:19-34 Ps 71:17-24 Prov 2:3-5

IT IS FOR YOUR GOOD

From the beginning, the devil’s modus operandi has been to sow the seeds of doubt in the heart of mankind with regards to the plan and intentions of God for them. For example, while God’s reason for restraining Adam and Eve from eating the forbidden fruit was to keep them alive, healthy and prosperous, the devil...More
