Be Content-Monday Motivation

But godliness with contentment is great gain.

1 Timothy 6:6 (KJV)

Not just a little bit, but here Paul says these two attributes are great gain. We try and try to get more. We want a higher position or a better title. We want more things so people can look at us and be amazed. We want, we want, and we want some more. Somewhere in us there is a desire to want more; which is not bad in itself. However, that desire becomes distorted when we believe that more of this and that will validate or make us of some worth.

But Christ wants to remind us that godliness and contentment are all we really need. Seek to know the Lord more than you do now. Keep striving for want you want, but be pleased with what God has given you now. A real relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ is all that you need. Rest in that fact and be content. Plus your blessing is on the way!
