Enjoying the freedom of being good enough

Thought to ponder

Last night I had the privilege to be a part of a church service where Baxter Kruger and Paul Young tag-teamed in giving the message. Paul made a statement I thought appropriate for the “Good Enough” paradigm:

“The opposite of more is enough.”

So often we get caught in the endless wheel of “more.”

  • Do more.
  • Reach more people.
  • Get more offerings.
  • Pray more.
  • Read more.
  • Be more.

More is exhausting.

Grace allows us to relax.

To breathe.

To rest.

To be.

Grace is the beautiful message from God that we don’t have to be or do more.

We’re already enough.

We’re already accepted.

What we have is enough, for they are his gifts.
