S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
1 Timothy 6:6
But godliness with contentment is great gain.
Here, St. Paul says that great gain happens when a person can arrive at a place where they live a godly life and are content with who they are in Christ and what they have. He said that many people fall into the temptation of wanting to get rich, and when they do, they end up trapped.
We’re living in a time when money has taken over the hearts and minds of people everywhere. The idea that contentment could ever be achieved is laughed at by many. Yet right here, the great Apostle tells us that contentment and godliness should be our mission. Since we brought nothing into this world and shall take nothing out of it, to want money for the purposes of status, or power, or position, it will only lead to destruction. How do we attain godliness? The best way I know how is to follow the life of Christ. His teaching and His benevolent acts of kindness should be our daily devotion. How do we achieve contentment? I believe that contentment is discovered only from a GRATEFUL heart! When we are thankful for who we are in Christ, and for what we have, contentment will follow. That’s “How To Attain Great Gain!”
This AM, I must say I’m content, and I’m moving towards godliness. I never feel like I’m where I should be with either; however, I’m better than I used to be. Even though I have a long way to go, I do believe I am the recipient of GREAT GAIN! Amen
