Now vs. Next….

Drink a cup of contentment and watch your entire perspective about your life change! The secret to life has been found so feel free to live it and share it with others! Don’t waste a season of your live in the now because you’re too focus on the next. When Paul wrote “godliness with contentment is great gain” he wasn’t just speaking philosophically (1 Tim. 6:6). He had learned the secret to contentment in every circumstance of life (Phil 4:11-2). Like Paul, for those who are willing to learn, here are 5 steps to a contented life from the life and teaching of Paul. 1)Give thanks in all circumstances (I Thess 5:8). 2)Learn to be satisfied with less (see above). 3)Live above your circumstances ( 2 Cor 12:9-10). 4)Rest in God’s promise, plan, and providence (Rom 8:28). 5) Think less of your self and more of others (Phil 2:3-4). Look at it this way, a self-centered man is a discontented man. But the soul of the generous man, the man who lives for the interests and benefit of others, will find blessing upon blessing in his life (see Prov. 11:24-5; 19:17; Luke 6:38; 2 Cor. 9:6).
