Contentment…

March 3, 2009

contentment

I ran across this wonderful post by Big Mama on the issue of contentment. Do we ever seem to think that what we have is enough?  We are so blessed!  In spite of all the turmoil going on in the world economy…as Americans we have SO MUCH. And even for those of us who may be struggling or out of work, let me assure you that in the big picture of the global community? We are living in absolute abundance.

When we are able to lay hold of true contentment we realize that we don’t NEED anything that can be purchased to complete us, and it tends to make us more willing to reach out to those who ARE in need around us – and around the world.

So thanks for the reminder Big Mama…this scripture really rang true in my heart!

…give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say ‘Who is the Lord?’ Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God.” Proverbs 30: 7-9

If you want to reach out to someone in need please consider sponsoring a child through Compassion – it will change a life forever and it will change your heart in the process.
