Satisfied-Monday Motivation

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

Not just a little bit, but here Paul says these two things are great gain. We try and try to get more. We want a higher position and 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! In our flesh there is a desire to want more; which is not bad in itself. However, that desire becomes distorted when we believe that more material "blessings" validate or make us of greater worth.

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 so far. A real relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ is all that you need. Rest in that fact and be satisfied. Plus your blessing is on the way!
