Less is More
Growing up we have this idea that the more we have the better off we will be. Well… At least let me speak for myself. Growing up I always had this idea that having more means that I am better off. If I only had more time, more money, more clothes, more things then I will be happy, then I will experience the fullness of life. But is that really the case?
Let’s think about what happens the moment that you want more. No matter how much you have there will always be more. You can never really have “enough” of anything. You get more time, you fill it up with more things you don't need. You get more money then you start to buy things that you don't need. You get more clothes they come out with new styles and things go out of fashion. No matter what you do things are endless. Then what becomes the answer?
Making use of what you do have. Learning to appreciate the things that you do have. Paying attention not to what you desire but to what has been provided. There are so many blessings that are spread throughout our day and throughout our life that we don't pay attention to because we are desiring something that is outside of our possession. Why is Less more?
Less is more because you can begin to get more value out of the little that you begin to pay attention to. This can be the things that you possess in your home. This can be your family, spouse, children, grandchildren. What are you desiring more of? Have you paid attention to what has already been given? This thanksgiving and Christmas season, I encourage you to pay attention to what has been given you, so that Less can become More. Blessings and Happy Week!
