Review: More than Enough

More than Enough: Living Abundantly in a Culture of Excess by Lee Hull Moses

More than Enough: Living Abundantly in a Culture of Excess by Lee Hull Moses
Ever look around your life and feel overwhelmed with gratitude for everything you have? Sure, nothing is perfect, but if you have a safe place to live, food on the table, and clothes to wear, the reality is that life is pretty good. That's not true for many people in the world, and you may wonder, "How do we live in a way that honors God and shows gratitude for the good life we are living in the midst of a world full of pain and brokenness?"

All our daily choices have an impact on the earth and the people around us: choices about where we shop, what we eat, what we give away.… But can we really do anything to help? Can we find joy in our own lives when there is so much pain in the world? Sorting out the answers gets overwhelming and complicated very quickly.

With a blend of practical reflection and insight on topics from guilt to delight, More than Enough goes beyond a call to gratitude and generosity and invites the reader to a new way of life, one that is grounded in the hope and grace of God. - Goodreads

This book is relatable and down to earth. Lee illustrates many ways to live faithfully through simple living, buying responsibly, advocating for justice, and connecting to the community of the church. Simple living is described as a way of life; and Lee differentiates this from a list of rules, steps or guide for living more with less.

Lee explains why it is important to have balance between living faithfully and abundantly. She also highlights the need to have grace for oneself and others rather than judgement of unmet expectations. The reader is encouraged to do the best they can, accept that this is good enough, but also try to find ways to improve.

Many biblical examples are used to illustrate the authors stance. Lee presents an interesting discussion about what it means to be blessed by God, and why we serve others. The importance of community is also addressed, particularly in terms of how we impact our global community and also how we are supported by others within the local community.

Overall, this book left me feeling that faithful and simple living is well within my grasp. Furthermore, I was given some ideas for how I might achieve this and grace for the days that I wont come close to my goals.
