Courageous: Having It All
Finding contentment and being thankful can be difficult because we live in a culture that values material things and tells us that unless we have “this or that” then we are somehow lacking. Granted material things are important for us to meet the basic needs of our lives, however as Paul says to his protege Timothy, don’t get bitter when you think other people have better stuff and more money than you. Focus on what you do have…faith, prayer, service to others, ways you can be generous; and give thanks to God for these things. In Christ you have it all! Maybe this is the secret to contentment?
