Sunday Thoughts

28 09 2008

Today our pastor explained that contentment means your happiness not being dependent upon your circumstances. When you get what you want, you’ll just want something else. Wow! That is so true. I never realized that you have to learn to be content. I just figured those who seemed content, had that type of personality or had a great life. But in reality, they have just learned to be that way.

I hope you have a great Sunday and learn to be content. I know I needed this lesson:-)

 

Verses of the day:

“I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of contentment in every situation.” Phil. 4:12 (LB)

“There is great gain in godliness combined with contentment; for we brought nothing into the world and we can take nothing out of it.” 1 Tim. 6:6-7 (NRSV)


You can listen to any of Pastor George’s sermons via internet on his Pod Casts

It’s such a hard thing to learn isn’t it? And something that I strive for daily ~ reminding myself of all the blessings I have in my life instead of the things I might be missing.

Thanks for the reminder!
