Contentment Comes from Proper Perspective

Contentment Comes from Proper Perspective - 1 Timothy 6:6

It can be challenging to be surrounded by people more wealthy and prestigious than we are because we often start measuring our lives by their standards and become discontent.

There's always something we can buy that we don't have, some trip we can take that we haven't taken, some luxury or convenience we want but don't need.

That's why it's important to see our lives in perspective to the rest of the world.

Did you know:
Contentment Comes from Proper Perspective - 1 Timothy 6:6“If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep ...you are more comfortable than 75% of the people in this world.”(1)

After we see our lives in perspective to the rest of the world, we also need to see our lives in perspective to the Gospel: For "godliness with contentment is itself great wealth." (1 Tim.6:6, NLT)

Let's give our hearts to the pursuit of spiritual wealth.
