Contentment and gratitude

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
Philippians 4:10-12
It's so easy to want MORE. MORE money, MORE time, MORE benefits. MORE. While we reach to live our best life, and help others along the way, It is important to have an attitude of contentment too. Being dissatisfied with life can create anger.

Today be like Paul the Apostle who said; But godliness with contentment is great gain. 1 Timothy 6:5-7

Keep that attitude of gratitude!

    As I was taught growing up, be thankful for what you have. There is no need to overstrive for MORE. The best thing to strive for is to be BETTER!

    Oh what a lovely message! You know, on those days when I AM feeling the push of MORE, MORE, MORE, I read my gratitude journal. That sets things straight again! Prioritizes things nicely.

HUGS and smiles.

    You are so right!! Being dissatisfied with life can create anger which leads to stress!! So much better to count your blessings rather than someone else's.

Have a very peaceful day!!

    You are so right.. It is better to be content than angry .
We still have to challenge ourselves to be the best we can be.
It is important to know the difference between being productive and being distructive.
