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."
Content--a word I have been trying to embrace. After all my car troubles a few weeks ago, we started looking for a new car. My car did get completely fixed and is running just fine, yet we started thinking we needed something better, a little bigger, newer. Then we started crunching numbers, how high of a payment were we willing to go for? How many bells and whistles did we "need"? After discussing it and praying about it and warding off the salesmen, we came to our senses and decided we were just fine with my current vehicle. We were content. This world tries to keep us uncontent, telling us that we need something bigger, faster, shinier, newer. But, the Bible tells us to be content with what we have, so that is what I am working on doing and let me tell you, content is a much more peaceful place to be in, just as God planned for us.
