Be Content: Hebrews 13:5

Don’t love money. Be happy with what you have because God has said, “I will never abandon you or leave you.”

Hebrews 13:5 (GWT)

Love of money, an unhealthy desire for wealth, or covetousness; are worldly behaviors that lead to dissatisfaction and envy. Christians need to be thankful for what they have and not be anxious about worldly things. Our lives should not revolve around earthly treasures, which are easily lost or destroyed. Instead, we should store our treasures in heaven; by living the way God asks us to live.
We should be happy and thankful for all God has given us; be content. For God says, I will never abandon you or leave you. An attitude of contentment brings heartfelt peace and leads to a positive outlook exemplifying Christian life.

5-6 Don’t be obsessed with getting more material things. Be relaxed with what you have. Since God assured us, “I’ll never let you down, never walk off and leave you,” we can boldly quote,

God is there, ready to help;
I’m fearless no matter what.
Who or what can get to me?

Hebrews 13:5-6 (MSG)

Are you worried about your status and keeping up with the neighbors; or content in the knowledge that God will never abandon or leave you?

Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your forgiveness and love. Teach us to be content with what we have, and realize what is important in life. Help us to store our treasures in heaven; rather than in material things. Like the zinnia flower reflects sunlight, let us reflect Your light and spread Your love. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen

  1. Amen Jeanne. All we need, the Lord will provide. May we find contentment, peace and rest in His provision and not lose sight of His love for us. 💕🌷


  2. Amen, Jeanne. Godliness with contentment is great gain. I hold onto that verse quite often. For me contentment has definitely been a process that I have grown in and continuing to grow in. I have found that intentionally being grateful helps me when I am grumbling or discontent about anything.
    God bless you.

    1. Hi Manu, I think that finding/achieving contentment is a process. For me, taking time to count my blessings, figuring out what is important, and embracing God’s promises, leads to contentment.
      It is always good to hear from you! Blessings!💖🦋🌺
