A number of years ago, while we were shopping, my wife had her purse stolen. It was not ripped off here arm but rather a person bumped into her, managed to take my wife’s purse without her realizing, and then left. It was stolen and she did not even know it happened. I don’t know if you realize it or not but our contentment can be like that. We can be content with what we have or what we have accomplished and then we see someone who has more or has accomplished more and our contentment is stolen except in this case someone else did not take it rather we allowed it to be taken. In the Bible in the book of Philippians chapter 4 verse 11 the writer shares, “for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content. He also shares in verse 13 how he experienced this ability, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
