More than Enough Isn’t Enough

More than Enough Isn’t Enough

Genesis 3:8-13

Entitlement goes back to the garden of Eden. The sense that I deserve more, or I deserve better, or I’m not getting my fair share for my work, has been around since Genesis 3. It’s easy to be disappointed in Adam and Eve’s unwillingness to submit to God. Still, I live with more than enough but always seem to be longing for more. What does it say about my heart that it’s easier to fill my emptiness with created things rather than with my Creator? Why do I end up blaming others and God frequently? And why must I look to faith in Jesus in my struggle against the deception of entitlement?
