contentment…

These people are grumblers and complainers, living only to satisfy their desires. They brag loudly about themselves, and they flatter others to get what they want. [Jude 16]

I re-read Jude after my friend Dana preached on it… and as part of my word study of “complaining” which I will be preaching on next month. This little word “contentment” keeps popping up on my mental radar screen.

Contentment…
regardless of circumstances.
Contentment…
regardless of whether or not what I do is worthy of recognition.
Contentment…
regardless of how hard the job or seemingly unimportant the task.
Contentment…
resting in God’s direction, care and counsel.

Complaining and a lack of contentment are linked in a deep way. Now if I can just tease that out so that I can show God’s way, not our “default mode” of operations…

Just thinking out loud…
