Godliness with Contentment is Great Gain
1 Timothy 6:6
All men live in one of two tents- content or discontent.
In which do you live?
The contented man looks beyond his circumstances and sees a better day;
The discontented man looks at his circumstances and sees no other way.
The contented man understands the purpose for which he was born;
The discontented man looks at others' success with a face that is filled with scorn.
The contented man has surrendered to a purpose that demands his best;
The discontented man has selfishly hoarded much and, grasping for more, he will not rest.
The contented man has placed his values on things that will forever last;
The discontented man places his values on things that will soon be past.
The contented man is anchored to clear goals and hardly ever swayed;
The discontented man has no goals that anchor him and is many times dismayed.
The contented man counts his blessings and names them one by one;
The discontented man counts others' blessings and thinks he has no fun.
All of us live in one of two tents- content or discontent.
In which tent do you live?
