Being Content.

King Solomon was the wisest man that ever lived. He also was the richest man that ever lived. And most people don’t know that he ruled most of the known world. Solomon was so rich that he kept the gold inside Jerusalem’s walls and dumped the silver on the ground outside the walls of the city. Solomon tried most everything. He had 900 wives which caused much grief and sorrow when he died. The son that became king went about killing his brothers and sister to establish his throne over Israel. Solomon wrote the book of Ecclesiastes. The book is inspirational, but it is writing in a matter of fact style. As you read the book, you can see that Solomon was jaded with life. Solomon started out so well with God. He was content with the gift God gave him of wisdom. But his life changed and not for the better. His father, King David, knew that God was the center of his life. And that you had to stay in God’s will to be content. Money and power don’t make you content and fulfilled. Though Solomon ruled the world, but he wasn’t a happy man. Everything he did had to be bigger and better. Does this sound familiar? Being content with God is the best thing that you can have. And it is all in the choices you make in life. Choosing to follow Jesus is the best choice you will ever make no matter where you are in life. As the bible says, Godly contentment is great gain (1 Timothy 6:6).
