How Much is Enough?

I’m sure you’ve heard them… the pious people who say they don’t need a lot of money, they only want enough to take care of their needs. This is usually said in a “holier than thou” manner as if there is something super spiritual about being poor.

There’s nothing spiritual about an attitude like that. In fact, it’s downright selfish, and it certainly isn’t what God has in mind for His children. He wants you to be blessed so that you can be a blessing to others.

“Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God which He has given you.” —Deuteronomy 16:17

Your error is in thinking that having more than enough has anything to do with you. It’s all about God and others.

    Yes! and God “is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us”
