Can you say from your heart that you are content with whatever state you are in? Have you mastered to secret of living in every situation? Whether it is a full stomach, with plenty or little. Philippians 4:11-14
Learning how to live on almost nothing or with everything is a skill which we must all master. But we can only be fully contented when we rely on God's generous strength and empowerment.
Whether poor or rich we must understand that we are nothing with out Jesus Christ as Our Saviour.
Agur in Proverbs 30, prayed...(NLT)
7 O God, I beg two favors from you;
let me have them before I die.
8 First, help me never to tell a lie.
Second, give me neither poverty nor riches!
Give me just enough to satisfy my needs.
9 For if I grow rich, I may deny you and say, “Who is the Lord?”
And if I am too poor, I may steal and thus insult God’s holy name.
Having such contentment is a blessing rather than a curse. Would you deny the desire to gain riches in order to keep your relationship and integrity with God? Or would you rather gain the whole and loose your soul? -Is it profitable? (Mark 8:36)
