Mid-spring with four sports, three other weekly commitments, plus the usual and I am behind on the A to Z challenge. So today I will borrow the words of Larry Burkett, founder of Crown Financial Ministries.

Indulgence

It’s easy to rationalize an indulgent lifestyle in a society where most people indulge themselves. While we go to sleep disturbed over whether or not to buy a big screen TV, over half the world’s children go to bed hungry or cold. One who never is willing to sacrifice, never willing to deny impulses to spend, and constantly seeks to indulge whimsical desires, will always be in bondage and feel frustrated. –Larry Burkett (The Word on Finances)

“He who loves pleasure will become a poor man; he who loves wine and oil will not become rich.” (Proverbs 21:17)

“Like a city that is broken into and without walls is a man who has no control over his spirit.” (Proverbs 25:28)

“A sated man loathes honey, but to a famished man any bitter thing is sweet.” (Proverbs 27:7)

The question I don’t ask myself often enough is how much is enough?

–Kristin
