More of Him

Several years ago, I ran into my friend, Pam, and her six children at the store. All six children were either in the cart or holding onto the cart as they walked through the aisles. They were yelling, “We don’t need any, we don’t want any, you can’t make me buy any.” Witnessing this scene, I thought what a wonderful idea. Pam was teaching her children two big concepts. We don’t need everything nor will be get everything we want.

To quote author and speaker, Matthew Kelly, “You cannot get enough of what you don’t really need.” Focusing on attaining things we don’t really need only leaves us empty. Ultimately, God and God alone can provide what we truly need: More of Him.
