ENOUGH

Have you notice how complex and twisted life has become? There are more choices, details, and processes then ever before. Life was much simpler in the past. Consider the simple act of watching television. When I was a child there were three or four channels to choose from. Sure, the selection was limited but the shows were great and today are considered classics. Now, there are literally hundreds of channels and frequently nothing worth watching. There are more choices and options, in just about all aspects of life, now than ever before but also more unhappiness and unrest. More does not always mean better. Sooner or later you learn that less is more and you finally say "Enough."As you grow older and wiser you realize that you don't really need that much in life. Fancy cars, homes, and things are not important. Health, family, friends, and safety matter the most. 

Perhaps you have reach the point where you know that Jesus Christ is enough for your life. If you have, you understand that in Christ you already have all you could ever need. If you haven't, you may be caught up in the allure of worldly things or things of the flesh. Then enemy of God is skilled at creating a facade of glitz and glamour to attract you and keep you from the One that means more than anything. Set your eyes and heart firmly on the Lord. Ask Him to show you what really matters most. When you do you will know that Jesus Christ is enough for you.

"Watch out for people who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They spread their ideas through the empty traditions of human beings and the empty superstitions of spirit beings. But that’s not the way of Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him. When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything." Colossians 2:9-10 (The Message)
