Enough

What's enough?
I'd say that most people in the world today are looking for whatever "enough" is.  Sadly, this includes most Christians.  They want to know what God expects...what is enough for Him?
Going to church on the holdiays?
Going to church every Sunday?
Teaching a class at church?
Passing out tracks?
Going on a mission trip?
Chaperoning a youth trip?
Giving to missions?
Going overseas?
Surrendering to full time ministry?
Making sure to pray before every meal?

Are any of these things good enough?   Are they "enough"?

None of the above mentioned things are "enough", we will always fall short of Him.  Nothing we do will ever be good enough to deserve His love and nothing we do will ever be bad enough to keep Him from loving us. 

Moving to a 3rd world country does not make the Lord love me more than someone who never leaves the street they live on - we are each called to walk with Him - wherever that may lead! Moving here is not "enough". I can be just as much of a sinner in Mada as I can be in the States.

Thankfully, His forgiveness and grace are unending and know no boundaries.

Thankfully, it's not up to us to figure out...He spells it out pretty simply for us in Micah 6:8
"And what does the LORD require of you; but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?"

It's not up to me...I just have walk with Him...He'll take care of everything else.
