How Much Is Enough?

You can handle wealth if you are more concerned about sense than dollars.

How much is enough? Madison Avenue tells you to have the newest, the best, the biggest, and the most. Society seems to judge people by what and how much they own. To avoid the quest to possess, should you deprive yourself of every convenience, or should you take a vow of poverty and give every piece of clothing with a designer label to the missionaries?

Jesus wasn’t too concerned about possessions. He was born in a borrowed stable; He fed five thousand people with a borrowed lunch; He was even buried in a borrowed tomb. But don’t think that Jesus was setting a pattern that requires you to rent your furniture rather than purchase it.

The question is not whether you rent or own. It is not even how much you have. The relevant issue is whether you are depending upon your possessions for your security or your happiness. Are you?

“Real life is not measured by how much we own…Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.” Luke 12:15,21
