      BY SOFO ARCHON. Contentment is what each and every human being is searching for, but most can’t seem to find it. Of course, it’s understandable why that is so – the way we’ve learned to live since a very young age inevitably leads us to experience a state of unhappiness, meaninglessness, and emptiness. However, we don’t have to live like this until we take our last breath.   “Christian contentment is that sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God’s wise and fatherly disposal in every condition.” I think that these two definitions are great summaries of what Paul means when he says, “I have learned to be content.”.

      In Chasing Contentment, Erik Raymond helps us understand what biblical contentment is—the inward gracious spirit that joyfully rests in God’s providence—and then how we learn it. Giving us practical guidance for growing in contentment in various areas of our lives, this book will encourage us to see contentment as a priority for all. Contentment has learned the lesson that Jesus is enough. If you know Jesus, you have a God who hears you, the power of love behind you, the Holy Spirit within you, and all of heaven ahead of you. If you have Jesus, you have grace for every sin, direction for every turn, .

      That is not the source of contentment. Contentment is an attitude you have and not an amount of money you possess. Paul told Timothy in 1 Timothy that contentment is something completely separate from a desire to have more money. In fact, loving things and a desire to be rich will drive you away from an attitude of contentment. “Health is the greatest gift, contentment is the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.” Buddha. “A contented heart is a calm sea in the midst of all storms.”.
