Original blog April 23, 2019. Most people want to know the secret of success, when they should be wanting the secret of contentment. Success is of very little use in times like this. Contentment, on the other hand, is of great use.
Hebrews 13:5, 6 – 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.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” (NIV 1978)
My Musings – We have because God has given it to us. We do not have, because God has not given it to us. Either way we can and should be content. Because God will never leave us or forsake us.
My Advice – Work hard to achieve and attain, but do not let it consume you. Be content with however God blesses you, whether with much or little.
