I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation. Philippians 4:12
Imagine visiting a man who was wealthy and successful, the envy of all his friends and business associates. But as you talked, he broke down in tears, confessing that he was miserable inside.
Then imagine visiting another man who lived only a few miles away from the wealthy man. His small home was humble, and he had almost nothing in the way of this world’s possessions. Yet his face was radiant as he told about the work he was doing for Christ and how Christ had filled his life with meaning and purpose. Wouldn’t you walk away convinced that the second man was really the richer man? Although he had very little, he had learned to be thankful for everything God had given him.
A Spirit of thankfulness makes all the difference. This month is Thanksgiving, why not make a list of something you’re thankful for each day.
