There is a striving for “things” that is not natural in God’s world. Being content is a huge thing.
It takes a supernatural courage from God to believe He is in control and that I have all I need. Godliness with contentment. Hmmm!! That is what I want.
In His world, I have all His riches. I don’t need the riches of this world. His new plan gives me all that I need in Him.
There is a way that leads to destruction. I will choose His way that leads to contentment and peace.
But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. 1 Timothy 6:6-10 TNIV Bible
