Content With God's Provision


“But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.” 1 Timothy 6:6-7 (NIV)


God promises to meet all your financial needs, if you (1) ask him for help and (2) learn to be content -- If you've ever seen a baby born, you know they don't come into the world with anything but a little umbilical cord and that quickly gets cut. And then, at your funeral, you don't take anything with you. The Bible teaches that we should learn to be content. What is contentment? Contentment means my happiness is not dependent upon circumstances. Most people get caught into "when" thinking: "When I get a certain job ... When I can retire ... When I get the house paid off ... When I get the bills paid off ... then I'll be happy!" God says, "No, once you get there, you'll always want something else." If you don't learn contentment, you'll never be happy. You'll always want more. "Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can't take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content." (1 Timothy 6:6-8 NLT)
