Contentment doesn’t depend on what we have or what we lack; it is found in Jesus alone. Be Content

Be Content

.

Hebrews 13:56

Contentment is a quality seen in very few people today. Our society is always offering new items, gadgets, upgrades, and conveniences that promise pleasure, comfort, and satisfaction. But no material goods ever live up to that promise long-term. Yet many people keep falling for lies instead of being content with what they have. 

The book of Hebrews was written to people who were experiencing discouragement and persecution for their faith in Christ. Those believers faced many hardships, including public reproach, imprisonment, and property Heb10:32-34. Yet in Heb19:35_36 , the writer urges them to endure because they have a better and eternal possession awaiting them in heaven. They may not have had tangible wealth or comforts, but in the Lord, they had all they needed—and He promised never to leave or forsake them, no matter what men did to them on earth. 

Most of us today have much more material wealth and security than those early believers did, but contentment is largely still elusive. That’s because the problem has to do with the heart. We love money and all that it provides. So while the Lord richly supplies us with all things to enjoy (1Tim6:17), true enjoyment is possible only when our heart is set on Him rather than on worldly things. He alone is our hope
