How much is Enough? Do we really need more than we have? What if we could finally come to the understanding that what we have right this minute is really and truly enough? Will Davis Jr., pastor of Austin Christian Fellowship in Texas thinks that people that live in our culture don’t really underestand how to be content with what we have.
As I was reading this book I started looking around my house, garage and yard. I really do have ‘enough’. I have enough food, shelter, water, clothes and stuff to survive and even thrive. Sometimes the stuff that we have starts to blug our perspective. Davis calls this blurred vision, SMOG. We get so lost in the smog around us that we lose our focus on what makes us really happy.
My take away from this book is a heightened sense of what really matters.
I have a huge stack of stuff now in the garage waiting to donate to my friend’s yard sale.
I have several piles designated to pass to friends and family.
I have 2 huge bags of extra trash – things that really have no value but have been taking up space.
This book is a wake up call to help us realize that enough is actualy enough. If we’re not content with what we already have, then it would be hard for us to be content with more.
You can buy Enough: Finding More by Living with Less from Amazon.
Do you have ENOUGH? How can you decide when you have enough? I’d love to hear your thoughts! Especially since this blog is called Real Life Deals! Do these deals and savings ideas I post help us grow in contentment? Hmmm…. something to think about today.
