Happy Without

Do you believe that Godliness with contentment is a great gain? Definitely YES! For we brought nothing in this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. If we become enamored with things like if we buy gold bullion and other material things, then be careful because we may wander from the faith and be pierced with the pangs of frustrated desire.

Why don’t we asked ourselves, “What am I truly happy without?”. For sure the answer will reveal much about our relationships with the Lord and our contentment with Him.

Lord, help me not set my heart on things that pass away;
Make me content with what I have and give You thanks each day.

I do believe that contentment comes not from great wealth but from few wants.
