Morning Musing Over Coffee - Contentment

Who is rich? He who rejoices in his portion. ~ The Talmud

We're not just happier, not just more peaceful but rich when rejoicing in what we have. And this quote from ancient Jewish wisdom is further supported in 1 Timothy when Paul says we have great gain when we are content. This doesn't mean lazy, slothful or uncaring, it simply means that we know He will take care of us regardless of our circumstances and we rest in that knowledge as we do the work He calls us to do.

But godliness with contentment is great gain. 
1 Timothy 6:6
