AUGUST 2019 SUNDAY – BE CONTENTED

OPEN HEAVEN 11 AUGUST 2019 MEMORISE:
Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife. – (Proverbs 17:1)
OPEN HEAVEN 11 AUGUST 2019 READ: 1 TIMOTHY 6:6-11 (KJV)

6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

One virtue that is gradually being eroded from the lives of 21st century Christians is contentment, and because contentment and godliness are actually inseparable twins (1 Timothy 6:6), it is therefore not surprising that there is also a death of godliness amongst us.

The cure to this deficiency in the body of Christ is the consistent teaching of God’s word on contentment.
I therefore encourage all teacher of God’s word to arm themselves with the sword of the Spirit in this regard and combat this issue in the church.
We can learn a lot on contentment from our Lord Jesus Christ. Even though He created the whole universe, He was content to be born into a family that could only afford a manger as His birth place (Luke 2:7)!
He owns the cattle on a thousand hills, yet his earthly parent could only afford to sacrifice two pigeons at the time of his dedication in the temple (Luke 2:22-24, Leviticus 12:8).
The Holy Spirit also teaches us contentment in Ecclesiastes 5:10-12, which says:
10 He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.

11 When goods increase, they are increased that eat them: and what good is there to the owners thereof, saving the beholding of them with their eyes?
12 The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much: but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep.
The Holy Spirit is saying here that no matter how rich a person is, there will always be the urge to run after more wealth in an endless vicious circle, unless he or she has contentment from God.
He also says that as we labour to accumulate more money, we might actually be labouring for people we do not know, who will consume what we have laboured for and might not even say “thank you” after eating of our sweat.

When you consider the rich people in your country, I believe you can point to several hundred of families who legitimately and illegitimately benefit from their labours and sleepless night spent in accumulating wealth.
What good have those stolen billions done for the bodies of those who loot the treasury of their countries, not to mention their souls?
A poor labourer who has contentment will always have an appetite to eat the modest food available and eat them at night.
Conversely, rich people without contentment do not sleep well, because they are always thinking of how to accumulate more riches and how not to lose what they already have to those out to cheat them.

For this reason, many of them are always suspicious of the people around them, seeing everyone as cheats.
Beloved, seek the Lord today if you want to enjoy life in abundance, and be content with the blessings He bestows on you.

The satisfaction that contentment gives is more valuable than all the riches in the whole world.

1 SAMUEL 10-11 KING JAMES VERSION (KJV)
CHAPTER 10
10 Then Samuel took a vial of oil, and poured it upon his head, and kissed him, and said, Is it not because the Lord hath anointed thee to be captain over his inheritance?
2 When thou art departed from me to day, then thou shalt find two men by Rachel’s sepulchre in the border of Benjamin at Zelzah; and they will say unto thee, The asses which thou wentest to seek are found: and, lo, thy father hath left the care of the asses, and sorroweth for you, saying, What shall I do for my son?
3 Then shalt thou go on forward from thence, and thou shalt come to the plain of Tabor, and there shall meet thee three men going up to God to Bethel, one carrying three kids, and another carrying
