6/28/13 Daily Devotion

Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

Contentment does not come easy. In order to be content, we must be happy with the exact place we are found at this very moment. That does not mean that we can never have the desire to surpass where we are, for that would be ridiculous, but it does mean we should strive to find joy and happiness in every station of life. Our focus should not be concentrated on always climbing higher up the ladder, but in the One who gave us the knowledge to invent the ladder. When we focus our lives on God, we learn to be content. We learn to be happy wherever we are found, and we learn that life is greater if we focus on the Giver and Sustainer of life. Contentment does not come easy, but it is obtainable.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me learn to be content with the position in which You have placed me within this world.
