The wealthiest 20 percent of the world’s population consumes 86% of the world’s goods.
We in America have more than enough, yet we are generally unaware of our excess. What we often think of as a basic essential for everyday life, many people in our world would consider a luxury. Try redefining your idea of a daily necessity. Ask yourself what your true needs are and consider everything else an extra that you could potentially live without. Then choose five “necessary” items that you will actually give up for today… perhaps toothpaste, coffee, your watch, makeup, and socks…or your backpack, jewelry, chapstick, sunglasses and wallet…? Sacrifice some items that you’ll notice are missing and practice saying, “I have more than enough.”
How do you respond to this statement by GK Chesterton? “There are 2 ways to get enough—one is to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.”

Read... Leviticus 23:22, II Corinthians 8:13-15
