"Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth." 1 Timothy 6:6 NLT
Thoughts for the Day
God tells us he is deeply involved in each of our lives. He blesses us in ways that have nothing to do with our marital state. In the end, God's presence and blessings are the most important positives we will ever discover.
Instead of waiting until we are married . . . or until we get the ideal job . . . or until we can follow a particular dream, we need to be content-today.
"Godliness with contentment is itself great wealth."
Consider This . . .
Paul found contentment in every circumstance.
Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. Philippians 4:11-13 NLT
Don't miss the blessings and opportunities of today by focusing on the hopes and fears of tomorrow. Follow Paul's example by being content and making the most of every circumstance.
"Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today."
Matthew 6:33-34 NLT
