Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned,
in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound:
every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry,
both to abound and to suffer need.
In the world we live in today, it is difficult to be able to be ‘content’. The ads of television, magazines, newspapers lure us with bigger, better, brighter. They make us feel inadequate with who we are and what we have, assuring us that true happiness is just around the corner when we buy their products.
It is difficult to break away from this pattern.
I, by NO means, am there… but I want to be. I have found one thing that helps is the absence of television in our home. The constant junk that filters through that black box is one of the biggest contentment-robbers out there.
Anyway off my soapbox… 🙂 I hope to try to keep my eyes focused on what is true and eternal and off of all the ‘stuff’ that this world has to offer.
May your day be blessed my friend.
