“But godliness with contentment is great gain.”
1 Timothy 6 : 6
Contentment is found only when we learn
to be satisfied with where we are and what we have.
It is an experience that cannot come
to the human heart naturally —
For the human heart is constantly dissatisfied.
And so cannot seem to have peace.
Environment, position, or power,
will not bring contentment for some
– It is a constant inability to
live above our circumstances.
God has a purpose for the things that befalls us.
Contentment- does not depend outward circumstances,
but rather on our inner experience.
The secret of a truly satisfied and contented life
is to be found only in our relationship with Jesus.
Scripture tells of a man who had everything
that he could desire and still was unhappy.
Position, honor – were not enough for him.
All his blessings and benefits – did not make him happy.
He could see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king’s gate-
and this displeased Haman- and he plotted against him-
to have him killed. In the end it all came back on Haman.
A good example for not being content.
We are asked – to talk to God –
and He has promised to supply all our needs –
and not all what we want!
WISHING YOU A BLESSED SABBATH..
