Contentment lies not in what is ours but in whose we are. When we come into a relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ, we understand whose we are and what we have. Envy causes us to look horizontally at what others have – and so we are never satisfied. We pursue the god of money, thinking about what it can buy us. Contentment invites us to look vertically at God. When we look in His direction, we know He is enough. Contentment is the secret to inner peace. It remembers the bare truth that we brought nothing into the world and can take nothing out of it, including our money. Life, in fact, is a journey from one moment of vulnerability to another. So we should travel light and live simply. Keep your focus, therefore, on God. He is enough!
