Enough by Will Davis, Jr- Made Sense to Me!
Does your list of "wants" keep growing?
How do you know when you have enough?
And if you do feel you have enough how do you stop acquiring more stuff?
Some points I found to be extremely helpful were: find out about money and possessions, knowing when to stop accumulating, what does the bible say about "stuff", and also the 30 second test (which gave me an awareness of what I had). These and so many more useful topics and suggestions along with biblical passages that coordinate with the points being addressed are included for study and reflection. Our materialistically rich society could absolutely benefit from reading and applying, into their lives, a book like this!
I feel this book could be helpful to everyone, and as I found out, while embarking on my own journey to live with less, and as I devoured the realistic content and anxiously turned the pages it all started to make sense to me. Fully relying and trusting in God I found myself looking around my home for items to give away (making several piles) to enrich others lives. Quite the keeper book, well written, entertaining and honest, to return to again if stuff ever seems to get out of hand, and to perhaps pass on to others who can benefit from reading it themselves. I highly recommend this inspiring and faith challenging book to others. 5 Stars!
