Contentment flourishes not in having great possessions, but in having few wants. (Jim Brown, pastor)
More is never enough. Once we have gained a good job, a nice house filled with the furnishings we want, and good friends—you would think that would be enough to be happy. But, we always seem to want more—an even better position, more “toys,” a measure of community recognition. Most of us soon discover that the desire for more is never ending and never satisfying.
True godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content. (1 Timothy 6:7-8)
