Little or Much

My heart rejoices at the sight of all the things I do not need. (as told by Joshua Becker, author and philanthropist)

That was the response of  Araneus who lived an austere, simple, solemn lifestyle when he visited the great city, wandering through its bazaars and markets. He was not there to buy the limitless offerings for sale; instead, he was content with the lifestyle he had chosen to live. What a contrast to 21st century society. The more we have, the more we want.

I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. . . . whether . . . with plenty or little. (Philippians 4:11-12)
