If you find honey, eat just enough– too much of it, and you will vomit
Ever heard of a woman who committed suicide just because she and her partner broke up? Ever watched in the news about a man killing his wife and the other man? These issues really happen because of too much affection. Too much love will kill you, a song goes. When I first heard of that song, I wondered how could too much love kill. Until news about crime of passion were shown on the television.
My mom said anything that is too much is not nice. Too much eating makes us fat. Too much sleep makes our head ache. Too much time spent watching TV makes our eyes sore. All work and no play make a dull boy. Everything should always be in control and in moderation.
If too much is wrong, then could having too much money be classified as unwholesome? If we are too greedy to share our possessions, I believe the answer is a big YES. According to Larry Burkett in his book, your Finance in Changing Times, “There is only one reason that God supplies a surplus of wealth to a Christian-so that he will have enough to provide for the needs of others. Because true wealth comes with the gift of giving, God promises His blessings to all who freely give and promises His curse on those who hoard, steel, covet or idolize.
If you have an excess, get what is enough for you and part the rest to others. Share your blessings!
