Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU. Hebrews 13:5
The Bible says that contentment comes from the realization that i have the most valuable thing in all the world… the abiding presence of God. Missionary Jim Elliot said “He is no fool who give up what he cannot keep, to gain that which he cannot lose”.
What earthly possessions am I clinging to? Is there anything that taints my character or am I increasingly content? I feel like contentment would define me fairly well.
God, thank you that no matter where I go, I have Your promise. Truly, better is one day in Your courts than a thousand elsewhere!
