When is Enough, Enough?

Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Phil 4:5 KJV

There are so many things in this life that God has given us to enjoy and He wants us to have pleasure while we are here. Relationships, eating, drinking, work, health, exercise, hobbies, are all valuable pursuits. However, none of these are to become the end goal and focus of your life.

When something becomes more important in your life than God, the cart is getting in front of the horse and before long your life will have an unhealthy balance. Self-control is a fruit of the Spirit and almost the opposite of addiction.

Jesus told a parable in Luke 4:21 about a man who amassed goods and the last verse was, "So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God." The problem was the man was NOT rich toward God, not necessarily having wealth. God wants you to have wealth, but not wealth to have you. God wants you to have food, but not food to have you.

Put God first in your life. Involve Him in your work, in your relationships, in your hobbies, pray over your meals, during your workouts. If you do this things will balance and He will show you when enough, is enough. When He is invited into your life, He will take part in your activities.
