Are you content? As I look around our world, I see a lot of discontent people. It seems that we never have enough. There is an ongoing search for happiness. We continually experience more and better, yet the satisfaction is fleeting. We have the mindset that after the next acquisition, encounter, or relationship we will reach the pinnacle and contentment will set in. We will be complete! Yet, it never happens.
Contentment is not possible without Jesus Christ. Nothing else can fill the void of His absence. It has been tried billions of times and proven futile. As Augustine so perfectly penned 1600 years ago, “You have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless, until they can find rest in you.” Pray you find the contentment and satisfaction that only Christ can provide…today and always!
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. Philippians 4:12
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.. Matthew 5:6
