A Sense of Enoughness

In her interpretation of The Rule of Benedict, Joan Chittister says we have lost a sense of “enoughness”.  We spend money chasing after the latest model phones that Apple tells us we need.  We go in debt for new vehicles when we have an older vehicle that is perfectly fine.  We consider ourselves failures because we compare our lives with all the perfect lives we see on Facebook.

And be reasonable.  This does not mean we settle for an abusive, unhealthy relationship.  It does not mean we do not have goals or dreams.  It means that we need to love life where we are with what we have.  God has given you what you need for this day.  His grace is sufficient.  He is enough.
