How to Stay Content


Contentment is not an easy thing to experience in today’s culture.

We face commercial after commercial after commercial, enticing us with the latest trends and fashions and gadgets. There’s always something new vying for our attention, promising to (finally!) make us happy.

So how can we remain happy and optimistic and content in our lives despite the culture we live in?

Philippians 4:12-13 says, “I have learned the secret to being content in any and every situation: whether well-fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”

In other words, we need to stop chasing after what we don’t have. We need stop believing that more money or more love or more affirmation will make us happy. And instead, we need to rest in who God is and the strength we have in Him. Because this is a blessing that will never be taken from us. Then, and only then, will we find true contentment.
