Text: 1 Timothy 6: 6. But godliness with contentment is great gain.
Godliness is a God-centered life. It grows, not through the pursuit of a process, but through the presence of a person. Jesus Christ is the mystery of godliness.
Contentment is finding joy in what God has given to you. The opposite of contentment is greed which destroys your capacity to enjoy what God has given.
The quest for more and insatiable desire for wealth has destroyed many in our society today.
It is God’s will that we prosper, but moving out of God’s will in pursuit of wealth, is an act of greed.
A man who fears God must live in contentment.
Better the little that the righteous have than the wealth of many wicked the Bible says. Psalm 37:16.
God instructs us to walk uprightly before Him.
Be contented with the little the Lord has blessed you with.
For it is His will for you at the moment.
Do not strife to make wealth.
Patiently wait for the Lord and in His time, He’ll uplift you again.
My prayer today is that God will help us develop a contented and Godly attitude in Jesus’ name.
