Thought For the Day: Be Content Within Your Means

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” – Hebrews 13:5 (New International Version)

This thought is sometimes easier to say than do.  There are some circumstances that I live.. I mean can think of where this just isn’t so.  All the same, it is well that one does as best as one can to find contentment within all circumstances to the degree this is able to be done.  Obviously, when you have pressing needs such as medical issues or need to find a way to better circumstances, there is also a need to know when to press onward toward suitable goals.

I think the thing is that maybe we need to be content to the point where we never compromise our principles nor ever act in any way that is not suitable to the dictates of our consciences.  This for me and those closest to me means to never violate the laws and ways of God.  It might well be another standard for others.  All we can ever ask of one another is that each does his or her very best in all circumstances.
