Christian Contentment

Key Verse

“But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out” (1 Timothy 6:6, 7).

Text — 1 Timothy 6:3-11


Talking about contentment, Oprah Winfrey advises, “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” Christian contentment may appear difficult, because our society and culture do not make it easy to be content. Society is always demanding that young people in particular conform to the new image it has established. Unfortunately, unlike the image of Christ, which never changes, the world changes its image as soon as its followers get close to achieving it.

As you already know, the world’s image constantly changes in the beauty industry. Apart from the knack for bizarre dressing and hair styles, many young people today are involved in the craze of carrying tattoos and piercings as marks of beauty. Some young girls also think they must have implants and all sorts of attachments to be attractive. Not true! As a believer, serve and obey God always and He will supply all you need.  Remember, material things are ephemeral “But godliness with contentment is great gain” (1 Timothy 6:6).


The world’s image constantly changes.


Money, money, money and not enough for the avaricious.

Prayer for today

Dear God, help me to seek first your kingdom and its righteousness.
