How do we find balance in a culture of excess?
Where bigger is better?
Bigger houses, bigger cars, bigger bank accounts?
I am far from wealthy. At least by American standards.
But still, I get caught up in the excess sometimes.
Too many clothes.
Too many left-overs that get thrown out, when there are hungry people all around us.
Too many “extra” things.
Excess. Everywhere we look.
To the point that we believe that excess is the norm.
I try to avoid excessive spending, and I am thankful for all that God has blessed me with. But I still often get wants and needs confused, and I don’t say “thank you” for what I have nearly enough.
