Be Content

Insights from Our Daily Bread...

Contentment is not natural for any of us. The competitive spirit in us drives us to compare, to complain, and to covet. Few of us are in a predicament such as Paul’s, but we all face difficulties in which we can learn to trust God and be content. 

O Lord, give me the grace to be 
Content with what You give to me. 
No, more than that, let me rejoice 
In all You send, for it’s Your choice! —Anon. 

Contentment is not possessing everything but giving thanks for everything you possess.
