The hard part for me is figuring out which to be content with and which to hunger for more with.
However, like you and Paul said, “I can do all things through Christ.”]]>
I wanted to comment on this because I’m giving a lesson tomorrow on scriptures, and this is a great example of how we can find inspiration for our current situations from scriptures that were written thousands of years ago.
I agree that our discontent is just all about our perspective. I had relatives who were miserable for years because nothing was good enough or done the right way. No matter what, these people could never be satisfied or contented with anything. As I age, I sometimes feel myself slipping into similar habits– habits I vowed never to get into. This post is a great reminder to let Christ lift us up, and light our way… to see the positive in any situation. Even rotten pigs.]]>
Susan, that was a great post. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and that particular scriptural passage. Probably the best thing I’ve read all day.]]>
