I posted a quote on the sidebar by Spurgeon that a friend posted this morning on Facebook. I thought it was a very good quote relating to finances and being a good steward. There are many times when I'll see something on sale or want something that costs a little more. What I'm realizing is that it's better to have just enough and not more than I need. It's wiser for a lot of reasons, but if I (or my children) have too much, then we do not feel as grateful for what we have. It is so easy for pride to sneak in and for us to take things for granted that are truly blessings from the Lord--we have not been given these things because God thought we deserved them, but because He wanted to bless us out of love.
