Contentment is one of the great blessing you can have in life but it can be a struggle to achieve it. We must learn to be content. Contentment is also required whether when you have little or have much. Why would I say contentment is required even when you have much? This is because even if you have a lot in life the desire and lust for more will prevent you from being content. I still struggle daily with the need to be content with what I have and maybe we all do.
Here is a just-enought quote to stride for:
A Recipe for Contentment
Health enough to make work a pleasure;
Wealth enough to support your needs;
Strength enough to battle with the difficulties and forsake them;
Grace enough to confess your sins and overcome them;
Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished;
Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor;
Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others;
Faith enough to make real the things of God;
Hope enough to remove all anxious fears concerning future.
