Be Content

Contentment begins when comparison stops.

It is impossible to weigh your contentment on a scale of stuff. If stuff is your measurement, you will never have enough, because there will always be someone who has more stuff than you do. You will never be content.

Neither will you be content if you are proud of the fact tht you don’t have a lot of stuff, because there will always be someone who is more proud of their poverty than you are.

Stuff has nothing to do with contentment, because contentment is a matter of your heart, not your wallet. Real contentment comes when you focus your heart and your mind on things above rather than things on Earth (Colossians 3:2). ~KP

I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation.
Philippians 4:12
