Are You Content?
"Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am." - Philippians 4:11

One of the most rare commodities in society is contentment. Advertisers want us to believe that their product is the key to finding fulfillment and happiness. Television, radio and internet programming reinforces this message and fills our homes with images of things. It's like this "stuff" is essential to our happiness.

Seeking satisfaction in things will never bring contentment; it just leads to further dissatisfaction. How do we find contentment? Like so many other things, contentment is a choice, a by-product.

A man who had more than his share of difficulty in life said, "I have learned to be content regardless of my circumstances." It was the apostle Paul who said that. How did he do it? The key was found in his relationship with Jesus Christ. That's the key for anyone. We all have the same opportunity to find contentment. It's a by-product of our relationship with Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. And that, my friends, is the key to being content

this is a lesson everyone should learn, but in this day and age it is hard to do. it has taken me 40 years to realize that when i was growing up i had very little that i wanted. But had everything i needed.

thanks btw i still have a problem with contentment, but working on finding it.

"Whenever anyone preaches disunity, tries to pit one of us against the other, through class warfare, race hatred or religious intolerance, you know that person seeks to rob us of our freedom and destroy our very lives...and we know what to do about it. Working together to produce an ever greater abundance of material and spiritual values for all. That is the secret of American prosperity."
