ALMOST CONTENT?

READ
1
Timothy 6:6-12


Be content with such things as you have for He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you”
-Hebrews 13:5

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
Psalm 146-147
1 Corinthians 15:1-28

As I stepped into the restaurant parking lot after lunch, I saw a pickup truck speeding through the parked vehicles. While observing the driver’s reckless behaviour, I noticed the words on the truck’s front license plate. It read, “Almost content”. After thinking about that message and the
sentiment it tried to communicate, I concluded that the concept "almost content” doesn’t exist. Either we are content or we are not.
Admittedly, contentment is a tough needle to tread. We are in a world that
feeds our desire for more and more - until find it almost impossible to be
content with anything. But this is nothing new. The book of Hebrews addressed this issue, saying ”Let your conduct be without covetousness: be content with such things as you have.For he himself has said,’I will never leave you nor
forsake you‘”(13:5). The only contentment for heart that ”wants it all” is
the contentment found in the presence of the living God. He is sufficient for our need and longing, and He alone can bring us the peace and contentment
we’ll never find in the pursuits of this life. Almost content? There is no such thing.
In Christ, we can know true contentment - Bill Crowder.
I find contentment in His wondrous grace.
No cloud or shadow can obscure His face:
When great temptations I must bear.
I find the secret place of prayer - Dunlop


Contentment is not getting what we want but being satisfied with what we
have.
