Contentment depends on our relationship with God

Reading: Psalm 131:1-3 and Philippians 4:10-20

Key Verse: I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I
have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation,
whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

We live in a world that celebrate people’s lives. A celebrity can use their status to make outrageous demands, but even then they are not content. So what makes us content?

Mary Slessor, a missionary, of renowned, to Nigeria lived in simple circumstances wrote in her dairy
“I not very particular about my bed these days, but as I lay on a few dirty sticks laid across and covered with a layer of dirty corn-shells, with plenty of rats and insects, three women and an infant three days old alongside, and over a dozen sheep and goats and cows outside, you don’t wonder that I slept little. But I had such a comfortable quite night in my own heart.”
