Dealing With Discontentment?

"While reading through the book of Numbers, I began to wonder if Moses ever got tired of the whining. For a nation of people that had firsthand seen the power and wonders of the Lord, they sure were a whiny bunch." ~JB

Contentment seems to be word that is quickly disappearing from life of many of God’s children. Slowly and deceitfully we have allowed the world to plant seeds of discontentment in our hearts.

Perhaps we need to revisit Hebrew 13:5: "Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, 'Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you'" (Hebrew 13:5 ESV).

Today’s Prayer: Lord please allow me to swim in the pool of contentment and not bathe in the pool of self-pity.

But godliness with contentment is great gain. -1Timothy 6:6
