Contentment isn’t gained, it’s realised

If you’re waiting for something to happen before you’re content, you’ll be waiting a long time.
If you expect that you’ll be content when you have that ‘thing’ that you think you really need, that expectation will never go away.
Contentment isn’t gained. It doesn’t come to you. It doesn’t arrive as an added bonus to certain things in life.
Contentment is realised. Contentment is a realisation that you don’t need other things, that you don’t have to wait for something to happen.
Christians should be great at this… because we’re the only ones who have reason to be content… we have the living God as our daddy through his grace rather than through our worth.
We, of all people, should realise that we don’t need anything else. We should be killing it in the contentment department.
So why aren’t we?
