264. A sustainable way to live.

Proverbs 30:7-9

“There are two things, Lord, I want you to do for me before I die: Make me absolutely honest and don’t let me be too poor or too rich. If I have too much to eat, I might forget about you; if I don’t have enough, I might steal and disgrace your name.”

Greed is one of the traits of animals that helps us to survive and at the same time as humans it gets us into trouble. We as humans can reason and know that enough is enough. We also have a survival instinct that when we get hungry it turns off this ability to reason and we do crazy things.

In your daily trials think to yourself, is this enough. Also contemplate saving some for later so that in lean times you have enough also.
