But godliness with contentment is great gain. – 1 Timothy 6:6 NIV
One thing that meditation teaches us is to focus on the present. Each breath is a gift.
Contentment is a practice. It is so easy to be discontented with the state of things. There will always be illness, difficulties, and people who complain in this world, but Christ has overcome the world.
There is a present eternity beyond this one that we haven’t yet experienced. When we look to Jesus, instead of seeing the things that we want that have not yet manifested in our lives, we see His grace. Amen.
