Godliness with ContentmentPanic over money is greed’s cousin. I have panicked. I don’t know what to do.

Am I content with what I have? Do I have enough to eat and clothes? Is there a good roof over my head? Absolutely yes. I have more than enough.

When I panic over something I have lost, I have stared greed in the face. Panic shows that I am not content with what I have. The panic I show these days is not healthy. I must learn to be content with my riches in heaven.

God’s goal for me is clear. His desire for me is godliness.

That is what matters for eternity. What “I have” in terms of riches is of no value to God.

Godliness is the mission. All else pales in comparison. What will I leave this world with? Not money. Only my love of God matters.
