Do You Act Like You Are Content?

February 12, 2022 Save Article

PRAY OVER THIS:

“Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’”

(Hebrews 13:5)

PONDER THIS:

The secret of satisfaction, of true contentment, is God Himself. If you told the man on the street that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and the secret of satisfaction, he would laugh at you. Hebrews 13:5 says, “Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’” The word “conduct” literally means behavior. The first secret of family contentment is God Himself. It is important to note we can’t just say we are content with God. We must also follow up with our behavior.

  • Does your behavior indicate you are content in God?
  • Where might you be seeking contentment outside of God? What might you need to change?

PRACTICE THIS:

Make a list of the most frequent ways you spend your time. What does this say about where you seek contentment?
