Contentment | Desire | Desires | Greed | Peace | Possessions | Priorities | Providence

In a cemetery in England stands a grave marker with this inscription: “SHE DIED FOR WANT OF THINGS” Alongside that stone is another which reads: “HE DIED TRYING TO GIVE THEM TO HER” In a laughable and yet tragic manner these epitaphs suggest the foolishness of living and working only for things. During this Christmas season, we are all out buying a lot of things. But I think we all realize that real happiness and contentment can’t be wrapped up and put under the tree. The Bible teaches the “secret of contentment.” Godliness with contentment is great gain. — I Timothy 6:6
