STOP AND THINK – Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you have everything. (Tim Timberlake)

Those are the extremes of life, aren’t they? If we have struggled with having too little, we know how difficult it is to be in need and have no resources. On the other hand, when we have a lot, we often fall into the trap of putting our faith in “things,” and feeling secure. But many people will acknowledge the importance of being happy in either circumstance.

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. (Philippians 4:12)
