The Freedom of Contentment

There are two ways to get enough. One is Biblical. This 1-minute devotion explains. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

“There are two ways to get enough. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.”  
G.K. Chesterton

Our grandparents saved years for things we buy on credit the minute we want them. 

We no longer understand the difference between a want and a need, and our culture encourages us to live beyond our means.

The worst part: we think we deserve these things—and that’s the rope that enslaves us.

Paul said, “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, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through [Christ] who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:12-13 

Today let’s take a moment to thank God for His provision and beg Him for contentment in whatever situation we find ourselves.
