Good enough

I had wanted to start this out with a question, but was hit head first with the answer....... "Yep!" Almost as if God had said in his best southern twang........ "you know the answer!" I do know the answer & maybe it makes me question sometimes why go on. Why work so hard at a faith that the world ( a world of believers) has minimized to a bumper sticker on the back of a car? Why wrestle before God when we have made our faith nothing more than the a popular slogan...... "Christians arent perfect just forgiven!"
Maybe a faith that stimulates, excites, hurts, cries out, & changes isnt all its cracked up to be. Maybe the masses (myself included) have found the perfect balance of consumerism & conversion.We have moved far beyond the limiting borders of a one size fits all spirituality & moved dangerously off course into what amounts to the Mall of Spirituality. We have made our beliefs fit us instead of our beliefs transform us. So the question is......  "Is it good enough?" "Is this all you ever wanted?" "Is this the life you dreamed about?"
Is the answer "Yep!"?  Have you settled for just good enough? Are you sure you would know the difference?
