Enough and to Spare

What is enough? What does it mean? How much is it? Why do we, at times, view it from a negative point of view?

exempli gratia: 

Enough is enough.

I've had enough.

Too much is never enough.

"Adequate for any demand or need; sufficient (says Webster)."

There's another perspective. The one about which I need reminding constantly. The biblical perspective:

"How many of my father's servants have bread enough and to spare?"

Enough and to spare.


And to spare.

Think of that!

"And now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we ask or imagine...."

That's King James for "enough."

Father, forgive me for being so ungrateful.

There's always enough.

And the rest is gravy.

Thank you, LORD.
