THE ART OF CONTENTMENT
What does it mean to be content? Hebrews 13:5 says, "Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee". We are to be satisfied with whatever the Lord blesses us with. That can be hard living in this present world. There is the mindset of "having the next best thing". There is the mindset of "keeping up with the Joneses". There is the mindset of "getting all that you can". These mindsets are not in line with God's Word. We need to keep focused on God and His plan for our lives. We cannot outplan God; His plan can't be anything but the best. So stay true to God's pathway. He will never lead you astray.
