The Light Daily Devotional – Godliness With Contentment
Focus: Godliness With Contentment
WORD FOR TODAY
Contentment is a virtue that cannot be bought with money; if you have contentment, you can never be trapped in the deceitfulness of riches!!!
“But godliness with contentment is great gain.” (1 Timothy 6:6 KJV).
The glory of the world always comes with the fear of losing it. Hence, men run here and there to get more things for themselves. However, in the course of trying to get the good things of life at all cost, many are caught in the wind of deceitfulness of riches.
Many lost their faith, commitment and consecration in God on the account of making ends meet. Any man who doesn’t want to miss out in God’s plan and purpose must look up to God for help so as not to fall into temptation when he begins to experience an increase in every aspect of life. In principle, the more the things you gather around yourself the more your worries over them.
Submit yourself always to God and know that your sufficiency is in God alone. Contentment in life begins with accepting the will of God for your life irrespective of your status and position. It also entails pursuing only what God wants you to pursue as well as associating with only those He wants you to associate with.
+ Have you found contentment in God?
Prayer: Lord! I receive the grace to find contentment in every facet of life in Jesus name. Amen!
Emphasis: Real joy and happiness will not happen in the life of a man until he finds contentment in God’s will for him!
Have an Impressive Friday!
