STOP AND THINK- Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough. (Oprah Winfrey, TV talk show host)


How much is enough? Modern appetites—whether it be for food, fame, or riches—never seem to be satisfied. Instead of being grateful for what we have (and most of us have more than enough), we always seem to want more. As Winfrey suggests, we’d do better to “concentrate on what [we] have.” That should produce a sense of gratitude and satisfaction.


Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income (Ecclesiastes 5:10). When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you (Deuteronomy 8:10).
