Godliness with contentment is great gain.
1 Timothy 6:6
When was the last time you let out a sigh of contentment?
Paul tells us to give thanks in all circumstances and to discover a joy that goes far beyond how we feel about our circumstances. And he certainly knew a thing or two about hard circumstances. He was shipwrecked, arrested, beaten, placed in jail, and impoverished. You may have a hard time imagining how anyone in such bleak circumstances could ever be content.
But you can. When we tether our hope to Christ, we don’t have to rely on our circumstances and moods for satisfaction. We can relax, knowing that our lives have meaning when we’re living out the purpose for which we were created.
Pray: “Father, I have all I need in you. Thank you for providing me with your many blessings this day.”
