Contentment with your circumstances and situation, and confidence in God will make life peaceful and happy! A dinner of herbs with contentment will yield a flavor of satisfaction unknown to those who eat the fattened ox. It is better to be happy than to be rich; happiness lies in the heart rather than in our purse [bank account]. It is not what a man has, but what a man is which will decide his bliss or woe in both this life and the next.
“I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 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 need.” – Philippians 4:11-12
– C. H. Spurgeon
