Contentment is found in Christ alone. As Paul teaches (by example), "I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.... I can do all this through him who gives me strength" (Phil. 4:11, 13).
Too often we try to find contentment in other things. This morning, as I reflected on the rain outside, it occurred to me that we look for substitutes to make us happy. We try to find happiness in the success of sports team, the sunny weather, or how someone treated us.
We will only truly be content when we find the peace that Christ gives us in a relationship with him.
