Think for a minute about the time you were the most content in life. When was it? What were you doing? Who were you with? Now, the kicker… did the contentment have anything to do with receiving a windfall–you know, cashola, greenbacks, money? Let me ask you this… Are the richest people in the world the most content people? Rhetorical question. Of course, the wealthiest people often seem to be the least content. With these things said, what do you spend the majority of your time pursuing, God or money?
“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. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.” 1 Timothy 6:6-10
