Being content

 

11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

Phi 4:11-13

 

Paul had learned to accept whatever circumstances he found himself in. How can we replicate his attitude in our own lives then?

In the first place it’s a matter of our focus. Paul wrote;

Phi: 1:21For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

 

If we put anything else in place of Christ in that sentence it will end in loss. -Career, Family, Ministry, all will be over when we die. But if we focus on Jesus, we will actually gain when we die and meet Him in glory.

 

How can we be truly content?

By understanding that there are 4 S’s in Contentment.

Success – That comes from seeking to become the person God is calling us to be.

Significance – That comes from spending our time on things that are going to last forever.

Satisfaction – That comes from learning to be   grateful for the things we have and to stop running after what we don’t have.

Security – That comes from the knowledge, that once we belong to Christ, nothing can separate us from His love.
