Contentment is such an elusive concept sometimes. In Philippians 4, Paul challenges us to learn to be content in all circumstances. Easier said than done, right?
This week, as I was digging “Into the Word,” I discovered a verse that provides the secret to contentment:
The fear of the Lord
leads to life;
then one rests content,
untouched by trouble.
Proverbs 19:23, NIV
I love this promise! The “fear of the Lord” means to reverence Him, to honor Him in all that I do. As I cultivate a worshipful life, contentment fills my soul.
Q4U: Do you struggle with contentment? How does this promise impact your understanding?
