Ahh, Contentment

Be Strong, Be Well — Saturday, January 16, 2021

“Now godliness with contentment is great gain” (1 Timothy 6:6).

Christians need to remind ourselves, God is the reason for everything we have. He is the reason we became His children and strive for godliness. When we put these thoughts together we should have no problem being satisfied and content, knowing we have all of life’s necessities, both physical and spiritual.

“As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:3).

If we come to a point in life when we believe what we have is insufficient, our faith has weakened. When we lose our trust in God, our mind will become troubled and worried. Our thoughts will drift about, preoccupied by searching for what we feel we need. All the while, God calls out to us and reminds us to calm down, focus on Him, and remember He has promised to take care of us.

“Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).

Our hope for happiness is not in the things we possess or in the power we have to do anything. Our happiness is in God. Let’s keep our faith strong and our trust in Him alive. And be content! —Chris
