2013 August 19 - Morning Manna

There is a generation, O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up. There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men. The horseleach hath two daughters, crying, Give, give. There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough: The grave; and the barren womb; the earth that is not filled with water; and the fire that saith not, It is enough (Proverbs 30:13-16).
Today's Morsel:I often wonder, when is enough enough. Solomon lets us know that there are certain things that are never satisfied. Many people seem to have more than they could ever need, yet they keep wanting more and more. They have a good paying job, but they try to win millions in the lottery. They have a great home, but they bid on the tracks. Many humans are never satisfied. Divorce rate is on the rise because humans aren't satisfied. Killings are on the rise because humans aren't satisfied. Greed has taken center stage because humans aren't satisfied. There is a gang called, "Get Money." When is enough enough? Paul informs us, "But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows" (1 Timothy 6:6-10). Be careful that you do not fall into the trap of thinking that you do not have enough. We brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
Sing: He's all I need! He's all I need! Jesus is all I need. He satisfies, my need He supplies, Jesus is all I need.
