I heard Maya Angelou say these words to Oprah a few days ago, and the sentence stuck with me.
It’s been an unvoiced mantra of mine for years. She just put it into words perfectly! It reminded me of this admonition in Proverbs 30:8-9:
Give me neither poverty nor riches—
Feed me with the food allotted to me;
Lest I be full and deny You,
And say, “Who is the Lord?”
Or lest I be poor and steal,
And profane the name of my God.
May we be people of moderation in all things, including moderation. But let’s be abundant and exuberant in praise and thanksgiving this and every day.
