Wisdom on Contentment

“But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.”
1 Timothy 6:8

“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.’”
Hebrews 13:5

  • Contentment does not mean complacency. It’s often through discontentment that we finally decided to change our direction and start growing in prayer, sound financial behavior, improved work ethic, etc.
  • If you’re discontent (being driven by covetousness) practice gratitude DAILY and you’ll see a change in your perspective.
  • Contentment is a state of mind. Happiness is a feeling. Don’t confuse one for the other.
