You may find contentment to be one of the more difficult Christian virtues to develop. Every day you are bombarded with advertising messages that, by and large, seek to make you discontent so that you can be persuaded to fill your new-found need with some new possession.
Think of it this way" Contentment is a by-product of thankfulness. Set aside some time each day to thank God for all He has done for you. And verbalize your thanks. Count your blessings, one by one, thanking God for each and every one. Soon you will have a new understanding of what you have, rather than what you don't have.
When we cannot find contentment in ourselves, it is useless to seek it elsewhere.
~ Francois La Rochefoucauld
When I read this devotion it really struck a chord with me. I need to be content with what I have and stop coveting things I want but don't need.
Blessings to you!
