The Secret of CONTENTMENT
Proverbs 4:7 “Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.” NIV
Proverbs 19:23 “The fear of the Lord leads to life; then one rests content, untouched by trouble.” NIV
Contentment - being full of life.
The enemy of contentment is comparison. Proverbs 14:30 “A heart of peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.” NIV
Comparison makes life about:
1) The wrong PERSPECTIVE.
2) The wrong PRESUMPTION.
3) The wrong PERSON.
The Secret of CONTENTMENT:
Ecclesiastes 4:6 “Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing the wind.” NIV
The Bible gives us a great example of a life of contentment through the life of the Apostle Paul. Philippians 4: 11-13 NIV
1) Realize what we HAVE.
I Timothy 1: 15-17
2) Make God our SOURCE.0
Philippians 2: 12-13
I Timothy 6:6 “Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth.” NLT
3) Live our life on MISSION.
Philippians 3: 12-14
