Contentment is realizing God has provided everything I need for my present happiness. (Bill Gothard, speaker and author on life principles)
Are you working hard to find happiness? Many are, but never seem to be satisfied with their present circumstances or place in life. They continue to look to others to make them happy or to provide something that seems to be missing in their lives. The Bible says, however, that happiness is associated with learning to be content with what we have.
But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that (1 Timothy 6:8).
