Godly Contentment

How many people do you know that are content, including yourself? Long time ago, God told me not to look at catalogs anymore. Because it leads to greed. And if I was greedy, I wouldn’t be content. How many things or actions in your life that you can identify that leads to greed.? Greed is the opposite of contentment. There are many other things that will rob you of contentment. Contentment is being able to enjoy who you are and what you have. It is one of the effects of the fruit of the Holy Spirit. If you don’t know what they are, let me tell you. They are love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, faith, meekness, temperance and against such there is no law. This is one of the ways that people can tell you belong to God. Jesus said it, by your fruits you will be known. It sets you apart from the rest and people can see it. Contentment as the bible says is great gain. Isn’t that one of the goals in life, great gain. And now you see that God’s way isn’t our way. It is totally opposite to us. That is why God says we must turn from our wicked ways and seek Him. Then when we find God and accept Him, we can have contentment. Because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts. 1 Timothy 6:6 “Godliness with contentment is great gain.”
