Two Things-Thursday Thought

But godliness with contentment is great gain. - 1 Timothy 6:6 (KJV)

Why do you want more from God? Contentment is such a hard concept for us to grasp. We want to the point that we are not satisfied with our current state. But why? We crave things so much we begin to wonder if God still hears our prayers. But why do we want more? Is it for ourselves or for a godly purpose?

Many of us need to stop questioning God and examine the intentions of our own hearts. Maybe Christ would give you more money if you planned on using it for heavenly purposes. Maybe He would give you a new job if you would honor Him on the one you have now. Maybe God would elevate you if you elevated Him in your heart! Godliness and contentment are all you need. When you get that the rest will fall into place. Why would The Lord give you more of anything just to squander it?
