Luke 12 vs 15; “And He said to them, ‘Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of things he possesses.’” HAVE you ever been hungry, really hungry? So hungry that when food is placed in front of you, literally you want to eat everything on the table.
Your eyes summarily tell you that the food is not enough, but as you begin to eat you fill up rather quickly and before you know it what you have eaten becomes a fraction of what you thought you would eat.
Our lives are somewhat like that, our eyes tell us that we must conquer and have everything on sight and in a bid to oblige we start acquiring and consuming without recourse.
The reality is that the table that the Lord has prepared for us is full and bountiful, but if we are always trying to devour everything we see at once we will never have the opportunity to do justice to everything presented to us.
So as we go about our day to day lives may we learn to bite small chunks out of life that we can chew and digest. More does not always mean we are happier. If we take things a little at a time, taking only what we are able to deal with, then we can fully tackle everything presented to us.
May the Lord help us to learn that the gifts He has decreed for us will always be there regardless of the time frame that may pass. Let us therefore eat with our tummies rather than our eyes. Be blessed. REFLECTIONS OF A WORK IN PROGRESS ...
