We have everything we could ever want, in excess. Think about it. We have it all. For the most part, we as a people want in nothing in this country. But we have way too much, we have everything in excess, good and bad, and so the more we get the more we want, until we have good things which are being wasted beyond could, and we have bad things which are beyond count.
We have forgotten what it was like to live in need. And that isn’t altogether a bad thing, we have made it into one. Because now there's a certain attitude where a little is bad, and a lot is never enough. It is a never-ending cycle. One that is so dangerous. I honestly believe that soon God will strip us of our excess, take away all our pleasure good and bad, so that we may once again realize that the only thing we should be wanting more and more of is Him!
My point is this. Look at your life. What do you have in excess? Is it bad? Good? If it’s bad then get rid of it if it’s good than practice temperance. Because even too much of something good can become bad. From too much food, too much recreation, too much sports, too much work, even too much water.
What we as a county must learn once more is Moderation. Self-control. And it starts with you and me.
God bless. Zac.
