Too Much

Chances are you mumbled those exact words at some point yesterday – i.e. I ate way too much!

Even though it tasted good going down, the consequences of too much can be difficult to endure. Even of a good thing.

After all, they say – Too much of a good thing is never a good thing.

Too much Causes…

Food... Indigestion, weight-gain

TV... Fried brain, wasted time

Medicine... Addiction, immunity (not to disease, but to the drug!)

Standing... Sore feet

Sitting... Sore butt

Talking... Sore throat, annoyed companions

Work... Tired body, broken home

Play... Laziness, irresponsibility

Sleep... Laziness, grogginess

Money... (yes, really) Too-big-for-britches syndrome (very dangerous J )

Caffeine... (yes, really) High blood pressure, headaches

Sunshine... Sun burn, skin cancer, drought

Water... Flood

Fire... Incineration

Of course, the list could go on. So many things that are good can turn deadly if consumed in large quantities… if we experience too much.

Although it doesn’t come naturally and we have to work hard at it, we’re meant to live balanced… disciplined… for our own good.

Makes me tired to think about having to keep tabs on all this!

I’m so thankful, then, that there are some things the Bible tells us we can never have too much of –

Love

Joy

Peace

Patience

Kindness

Goodness

Faithfulness

Gentleness

Self-control

(Gal. 5:22-23)

In fact, the Word says, “There is no law against these things!”

We can never possess too much!

So let’s load up and dish out!

Something your heart and mind can digest while your tummy plays catch-up. J

Have a blessed weekend and, as always, thank you for visiting Dry Ground!
