For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.
Godliness with contentment is great wealth!
So what does it take for us to be content?
The Bible reminds us that as long as we have food and clothing, we should be able to be content. It's when covetousness and greed take over, that our life gets out of control and we replace God with a hunger for what becomes our idol.
God wants us to let him be enough and see the rest as the overflow of his grace!
Holy God, help my heart to be content with the blessings you have poured out on me and to find my joy in you and your people whom you have put into my life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
