But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.__________________________
Contentment is a stranger to most of us. We spend ourselves gathering goods, scrambling after promotions, and juggling to include one more handful. Eventually, we will collapse with full hands and empty hearts. The wealthiest man, King Solomon, wrote, "Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind" (Ecclesiastes 4:6). Perhaps we would do well to listen. What could you do with one free hand? A content heart keeps a free hand.
