Enough is one of those words that conjures up so many different thoughts for me.
Have you ever heard someone draw the line and say, “That’s enough!”? I know I heard my mom say that a few times when I was bickering with one of my brothers. She had drawn the line. She was done listening to the banter.
We all have different limits and mine have definitely changed as I have moved through life. In some ways, I put up with less and in other ways I put up with more. I know my tolerance for some things is very different now compared to thirty years ago.
In terms of acquiring things, what is “enough”? That, too, is something that has changed for me over the years.
What are we collecting and what are we collecting it for? Will we ever be satisfied or is more always the goal? Is there ever enough time? Sometimes striving so hard causes us to miss out on other things.
Is there something you need to draw the line on? Is someone pushing his or her limits with you? Is there something you are gathering for naught? Is God trying to expand your boundaries? Are we seeking something because we are unaware that we already have “enough”? Are we too concerned about the future that we aren’t a part of today?
33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. [Matthew 6:33-34, NIV].
God’s blessings on your day, today!
