Action: Be content

READ: “But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content” 1 Tim 6.8.

THINK: Our basic needs are few, but greed always wants more. The Christians becomes rich by being content with what he has. Contentment comes “when we escape the servitude of things” (Wm. Barclay). Having God, the saint has everything, Heb 13.5. He is the only good of the faithful, Psa 16.2. Greed is never satisfied, Prov 30.15-16.

ACT: Donate the clothes you’ve not used in the last year.

PRAY: God who preserves life, with you have have need of nothing more. I lie down and sleep, in peace, content, and happy.

ASK: Are the things that I want the same things that God wants?
