Stories, thoughts and reflections on the Bible from the WSFC Staff.
This morning I read Proverbs 30:7-9 as a part of our Life Journal Reading Plan.
It was a great reminder about a great word: contentment.
“Two things I ask of you, O Lord;
do not refuse me before I die:
Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
give me neither poverty nor riches,
but give me only my daily bread.
Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you
and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’
Or I may become poor and steal,
and so dishonor the name of my God.
I don’t need riches. And I don’t want poverty. With one I may disown the Lord. With the other I may dishonor the Lord.
What should we aim for then?
Paul echoes this in Philippians 4: “For I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.”
