The Secret of Contentment

Do you struggle with having contentment? Do you find yourself not being content with your age or the things you have? Wishing you had bigger and better things not even realizing that what you do have Is more than you'll ever need? I know I find myself struggling with this alot. I tend to forget that so many people and children around the world don't even own a pair of shoes, or are so sick because they don't have the money to pay for health care, or having to worry about their safety. This bible study impacted me in so many ways. So I wanted to share It all with you! Proverbs 13:25 "The righteous eat to their hearts content, but the stomach of the wicked goes hungry." And Hebrews 13:5 states "Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you, nor will I forsake you."Having more things does not make you happy. The secret of contentment is not what you have, but rather who you know. You can drive expensive cars, own a nice home, and be very well off. But without Jesus in your life how can you be content? You can't. All you'll ever need is Jesus Christ. I need to remind myself of this constantly, so I hope that you all will remember the secret of contentment the next time you are feeling a little discontent!
