Speaking of contentment

January 11, 2013 — Leave a comment

I have heard of some good old woman in a cottage, who had nothing but a piece of bread and a little water, and lifting up her hands, she said, as a blessing, ‘What! all this, and Christ too?’
…To many men it is given to have all that heart can wish,
and yet not to have what their heart does wish.
They have everything except contentment.

Charles Spurgeon

You’re too greedy if God is not enough for you.

Saint Augustine

What I’m trying to do here is get you to relax,
not be so preoccupied with getting so you can respond to God’s giving.
People who don’t know God and the way He works fuss over these things,
but you know both God and how He works.
Steep yourself in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions.
You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.
Don’t be afraid of missing out.
You’re my dearest friends!
The Father wants to give you the very kingdom itself.

Luke 12:29-32 The Message
