Enough


Enough

By Adam Mundorf

Enough
Enough is a word that isn't used, well, enough.  In America, we especially have a desire for more.  We want more money, more houses, more cars, more likes, more food and more clothes.  With this comes more bodyfat, more insecurities, more worries, more obligations and more illness.  The word we need to use more is enough.  This spreads into more areas than just mental and physical health.  Enough is about leaving the world a better place.

I need to make a stand here.  As I reach out to try to find out where to put my money after I'm long gone, I sit with people who have fancy watches, large houses, nice cars and palatial plots of land.  There is no such thing as a wealthy Christian.  There is no such thing as a virtuous man who consumes much more than what he needs.  There is no such thing as a good man who hoards wealth.  To live for others and the world is a life worth living.

When it comes to philanthropy, we shouldn't need to impress people through our gluttonous and inflated lifestyle.  Aim to have enough for yourself and spread your wealth to others.  I can't think of a life more empty than dying with a lot of 'things'.  All your stuff will be divided by your next of kin, much will be sold off and some will be discarded.  What was new to you, is now trash to somebody else.  What will live on is your legacy, your foundation, your philanthropy and the lives you touched along the way.  Money can span generations as long as you keep it away from the greedy and gluttonous.

Meditate on this quote and live with peace of mind :

For it is through service to others in which we achieve success.
