The Content of Contentment
You have a problem… and you think it’s that you don’t have enough. You think you don’t have enough time, enough money, enough success, enough appreciation, enough relationships. That’s why your prayers are not filled with THANKING God for what you have but ASKING Him for more.
You have a problem… and you think the solution is getting more. You repeatedly believe another relationship, more money, new item or accomplishment will bring fulfillment. You don’t have enough of something, but that something is not a relationship, thing, money or success. What you need is contentment.
Gain cannot produce contentment, “But godliness with contentment is great gain” (1 Timothy 6:6). Our society’s deficiency of contentment has never been so evident in our families, in our schedules, or in our politics. The discontent has permeated into the church… as it did in first century Ephesus. In 1 Timothy 6, God reveals the content of contentment… and it (with godliness) will yield great gain. In this 4-week study, you’ll discover attributes of contentment and how to finally be content.
