CONTENTMENT! The Bible says a lot about being content. For example, the Apostle Paul says in Philippians 4:2- “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.”

Paul dogmatically declares in 1 Timothy 6:6 that “godliness with contentment is great gain.” Then he says in 1 Timothy 6:8, “But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.” The writer to the Hebrews commands, “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.” (Heb. 13:5).  When our lives are marked by discontent, we are actually making a statement about the God of the universe.  We are saying that He is not enough, that His presence does not satisfy us.
