God Alone Is Enough


There have many commentaries and thoughts about the Original Sin. Of course, Scripture has it as an act of disobedience. Humanity was told that they could eat of all the fruit in the garden, but the fruit in the middle of the garden they could not eat. Sadly, Eve gave in to the temptation to eat the forbidden fruit and she passed it along to Adam who also ate of it. Clearly this was an act of disobedience.

But what motivated them to disobey. Discovering their internal disposition can reveal to us the core sinfulness o humanity. Many people point to the commonly held thought that the core of human sinfulness is the sin of pride. Perhaps that is correct, but what if we looked at it differently?

Pride is among the seven deadly sins along with lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, and envy. What lies beneath these seven? It seems that the core to all sin is the belief that God is not enough to satisfy us.

St. Augustine says that our hearts are restless until they have found their rest in God. What do we do with our restlessness? How do we fill our constant hunger for more? It is often said that we have a "God-sized" whole in our heart and God wants to be our all in all. We are holy inasmuch as God is enough for us. If God was enough, would we need to turn to money to satisfy us? If God was enough, would have to "look out for number 1" as in the sin of pride? The ultimate question for us as disciples is to ask: "Is God enough for me?" For this reason, we have chosen Tom Booth's song God Alone Is Enough as our Song of the Week.
