Fresh From Heaven Says:
Opening Scripture: 1Timothy 6:6-“But godliness with contentment is great gain”.
A major vice eating up many today including some believers is ‘greed’, which causes them to be uncontented with whatever they have and this can be referred to as an ‘anti-God act or attitude’. If truly we are God’s children, we become God-like, godliness begins to run in us simply because like begets like. There is no way a Lion would reproduce a goat, or beget a lion that has some traces of a goat . In the same vein, God being our Father produces His kind. Our Father is a giver, we see this in john 3:16 and James 1:5. Friends, a lot of negative challenge would stop if only you would be content with what you have and depend on God for your supplies. By so doing, jealously would be far gone, strife and hateful thinking towards one another would be avoided. A reason why many can’t be content is that although they claim to believe God, their actions prove otherwise. Get to a point whereby if God doesn’t provide for you then it’s Heaven’s fault, and you know God would never be at fault. There’s no way you’ll be a child of God, living right, diligent in giving your tithes and offerings and extending a hand of love to the less privileged around you and Heaven won’t be responsible for you.
Competing with others brings about lack of contentment. Friends you don’t need that, as far as God is concerned, you are the best He produced, so why strive to be someone else.? Lack of contentment doesn’t work alone, it brings along with it hate, strife, jealousy, malice bitterness, all these are displeasing to God, it doesn’t bring any gain,rather it destroys our work with God; this is why the scripture makes us to understand that godliness with contentment is great gain. Watch it friends, be grateful for where you are and He’ll take you higher.
Remain Ever Blessed.
