I Am Content in Any Circumstance

We live in a society that places great importance upon external signs of success. We live in an affluent society that’s always expecting more, wanting more, and believes it even deserves more. But the more we own, ironically enough, the less we enjoy. When we expect to find happiness outside of ourselves, we are always disappointed. We don’t need more possessions. We don’t need more pleasure. We don’t need more money. The more we have, the more we still want more. The problem is not outside. It is inside. If we feel discontent, don’t look outward. Don’t try having more things. Embrace the mind of Christ. Pray. Serve others. Forgive. Encourage the people around you. Be generous. Bless and do not curse. Do good. Don’t look anywhere else. We can find our satisfaction at an inner place, at a deeper level inside us. Paul wrote his letter to Philippians 4:11-12 during his imprisonment, being in chains. Yet ironically, he wrote the most positive and joy-filled of all of his letters. Remember “Everything is a gift. The degree to which we are awake to this truth is a measure of our gratefulness, and gratefulness is a measure of our aliveness.” (David Steindl-Rast).
