Godliness with contentment is great gain: Have contentment with what you have,
The bible says In Proverbs 17:1: Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith,
than an house full of sacrifices with strife (KJV). The bible also says in
Ecclesiastes 5:10: He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that
loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity (KJV).
Sometimes in life you may not know the value of what you have until you lose it, the
bible says in Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be
content with what you have “God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I
forsake you” (KJV). The bible also says in Psalm 37:7:Rest in the Lord, and wait
patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way,
because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass (KJV).
Godliness with contentment is great gain:
Be contented with what God give you; as a sister that God
has wonderfully made, you don’t need to be artificially made again, you as man be
contented with your wife be contented with what God give you, because she is
specially made for you nobody is perfect except God, children should be contented
with their parent, and what your parent have, whatever your parent cannot afford
don’t admire it, be contented with what your parent have to give you, don’t be jealous
with what others have, you as a wife be contented with what your husband have, he
may not have today but he may have tomorrow, you as a upcoming leader that is not
contented with whatever you have don’t go on extra mile that doesn’t please God to
get the position you want, be contented with that position you are, some are still
craving to have the position you have.
The Jesus said in Luke 12:15:And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness:
for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth
(KJV) . Godliness with contentment is great gain: The bible says in James 4:1-2:
From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of
your lusts that war in your members? Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to
have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not (KJV).
Godliness with contentment is great gain: let’s us be contented with all we
have, because God loves who has contentment because they will be able to please
God and flee from the spirit of greed, Jesus said in matthew 6: 25-26:Therefore I tell
you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what
you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the
birds of the air; they do not sow or reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly
Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?(KJV).
The bible also says in 1 Timothy 6:6-11: But godliness with contentment is great
gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing
out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be
rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which
drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil:
which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced
themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things;
and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness (KJV).
Godliness with contentment is great gain: Be contented with all what you have, if
you are contending with all what you have God will continue doing more for you,
The bible says in Deuteronomy 8:18: But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for
it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant
which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day (KJV).
I pray into your life these prayer:
1. May God give you the grace to be contented and appreciate what you have in Jesus mighty name Amen.
