Does Contentment appear to be a "little lazy", and to have "no initiative"? Are we not to "work" so we and our families can have more? "Now there is great gain in GODLINESS with Contentment...but those who desire to be rich fall into temptation..." (1 Timothy 6:6-9). From this, GODLINESS and CONTENTMENT are inseparable. It is the emotional and Spiritual satisfaction which gives us Peace in our circumstances. Maybe we know we are content, when we see someone else rewarded and revered for something we wanted very badly and we are not envious. In fact we are JOYFUL for them! GREAT GAIN in GODLINESS with Contentment; we don't have to constantly "busy ourselves" TO HAVE GREAT GAIN!
Our prayer for ourselves and each other, is to have GREAT GAIN IN GODLINESS AND CONTENTMENT.
