be content with what you have, because God has said,
"Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you."
-Hebrews 13:5b-

This struck me as absolutely mind-blowing when I read it. Not only should we be content with what we have because we don't want to be greedy, but we must be content with what we have because we have everything we could ever need in our Lord and Savior! To not be content would be to say that Christ is not enough; Christ cannot fill the empty space in our hearts and lives; Christ is not the final answer. Christ is not only the final answer, Christ is the only answer. We have nothing without Christ.

But the one who is rich should take pride in his low position, because he will pass away like a wildflower.
-James 1:10-

Earthly belongings pass away. Money, clothing, positions, good looks, houses, accomplishments, even relationships. Some of these things are great things to have during our life times, but they are not everything. We cannot put our salvation and hope in anything that is here. The one and only thing that can give us hope, free us, and save us is Christ.

Be content with what you have not because its the good thing to do, but because Christ is all you could ever need.
