The Deal- More on Contentment


1 Timothy 6:6 Godliness with contentment  is great gain. For we brought nothing in this world and  it is certain we can take nothing out of it. 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.

That’s  really not a radical statement. But as you study it you will  find it is true. We came into this world as a baby with nothing. Slowly we absorbed the world’s  trinkets and because the world was and is fallen there is  unimaginable  sin.  So whatever we acquire here it is a product of a sinful world. Yet how do we cope? 

Our work is to stay in the ‘Word” ask for discernement from the Lord to understand that only though Him can we gain Godliness,  contentment, satisfaction , joy and hope. That’s powerful!  God’s only requirement is that you develope a relationship with His Son and our Savior Jesus Christ.

Be content in the ” Word” stay in the “Word”  daily. Spend time with the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. Let Him be the first that you speak to each morning and talk with Him, like I am speaking to you and contentment will follow. Yes contentment is in you   through the Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
