Do you think abundance is a bad thing? Many of us want to have an abundant lifestyle, but we live in a society that believes in scarcity. We always hear everyone complaining about not having enough money, there aren’t enough jobs available, and the high paying jobs are all gone now. If you are on social media very long or you go out to dinner with friends you will hear about how our world is falling apart and about to crumble.
It’s all in your attitude. Abundance is still here. When I hear people talk about how scarce everything is and how little there is to go around I always think about the sun. I was in a class learning about solar power when the instructor was going over how to conserve on solar power if we were to put in solar panels for our home. I realized that he didn’t have an abundance mentality. It wasn’t the sun that he was trying to conserve. There is an abundance of sun. It was money he was trying to conserve. You can put in as many solar arrays as you can afford on your home, but the sun is abundant.
We only use a minute portion of the sun’s rays that shine upon the Earth. Most of the sun’s rays don’t even hit the Earth. So God is abundant, but we don’t have an abundance mentality.
How do you get an abundance mentality? To have a mentality of abundance you have to think outside yourself. We are nothing more than finite beings. We can only think in finite terms. It is very easy to have a scarcity mentality if you only think about what you see in front of you. Obviously the Universe that God created for us is much bigger than just you and what you can see. It is infinite and just like the sun’s rays the Universe is dripping with abundance.
It’s all around us; all we have to do is see it. It’s just like when you buy a new car. All of a sudden you start noticing all the other cars of the same make and model on the road. You never noticed them before, but now they are everywhere. It is in what you see and believe. If you see abundance, it will be there. If you see scarcity, it will also be there for you to focus on. It is all about the way you see your world.
