Contentment doesn’t come naturally to us. Even apostle Paul had to learn it.
“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. (Philippians 4:12) Paul wrote this when he was in prison. How could he be content? The next verse reveals the secret- I can do everything through Him who gives me strength” (V-13). Contentment is an ability we cultivate with God’s help and strength. No matter what you’re facing today, through prayer you can receive the strength to be content.
Lord, Give me a heart that is content and remove greed and selfishness from me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
