Things – Philippians 4:11

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Philippians 4:11
I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.

What a powerful thing to learn. To be content whatever the circumstances we are in. Can you say you are able to be that? It’s a lot easier said than done, isn’t it? But why is that the case? Why is
it so hard to be content at times?

If we think about it, it’s really not that hard to see why. We are surrounded by a world that is consumed with having things. We are surrounded by a world that focuses on having the next cool gadget. We are surrounded by a world that focuses on having the “nice things” in life. A world that tells us we won’t be happy unless we get whatever it is they are advertising.

As you have heard me say before, it’s not that having things is wrong. The problem is when we make those things our focus. When we make living the righteous life our focus, it really is a lot easier to be content with what we have. Why? Because that’s when we remember the things of this world are just that. Things.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.

Here's something interesting to consider:
