“But godliness with contentment is great gain.” – 1Timothy 6:6
Many times we think we need something when we really don’t. Sometimes we want things we don’t need. We get our luxuries and our necessities confused.
Discontentment is a disease that takes away your joy and peace. And what is contentment? It’s not getting what you want but wanting what you already have. You see, contentment will make a poor man rich. And discontentment makes a rich man poor. No matter how much you have, if you’re discontented, you’re really poor.
Sometimes it is God’s grace that we don’t receive what we think we want. Once upon a time, two tears met up along the river of life.
Said one tear to the other, “Where did you come from?”
“Oh,” the second tear said, “I’m the tear of a girl who loved a man and lost him. And where do you come from?”
The first tear answered, “I’m the tear of the girl who found him and married him.”
You are rich today if you know the Lord and are content. Paul goes on to say, “For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. But having food and raiment, let us therewith be content.” If you have clothes to wear and food to eat and you have Jesus Christ in your heart, my dear friend, you’re blessed.
