How much is enough?
November 12, 2023
Message: It is an age old question - How much is enough? The world has an answer and it is this - You can never have enough. As Christians, however, we have to realize that blessings are meant to be shared. Maybe we should read the again - blessings are meant to be shared. Loving our neighbor in part means receiving when we are in need and giving when we experience prosperity. Spend some time today counting your blessings and then praying about how they could be shared
The Extra Mile: In the days of Jesus poverty was the norm. When Jesus taught his disciples to pray saying ‘give us this day our daily bread’, he meant it. When Jesus walked among us, poverty and hunger were normal and praying for what you needed was the only hope you had. This is still true in parts of our population and world, but it may not be true for you. As we read today’s scripture there is a challenge - to read it as the original hearers of Jesus would and maybe less so with the abundance of our world.
Scripture: Luke 12;13-15
