Contentment is a mental attitude
Contentment is a mental attitude. Currently, in the world, especially on social media, we often compare ourselves with other people doing better than us.
We often forget the good things that God has done for us and focus on what we don’t have.
Beautiful houses, healthy relationships, a well-paying job, and a luxurious lifestyle are all good. We have to learn how to appreciate what God has given to us at the moment.
Being content does not mean that you don’t have to work hard to have a better life. It means that you are grateful at your level while aiming for another level with an open heart.
God wants us to be happy and live our lives to the fullest. God told us in the Bible that he would bless the work of our hands.
Sometimes we do not realize the reason why we are not content with ourselves; we might think of something more that we need.
Maybe you are struggling to get promoted or get out of debt. The only person to help us is you.
You may have received a promotion, be debt-free, and be in your ideal relationship, but you still feel empty within.
The only thing that can fill the space inside of us is Jesus, and with him, we are fulfilled.
Sometimes social media can be a great distraction. You can forget all your problems and check out someone else’s life.
If we use social media for the wrong reasons, it can have an impact on our lives and lead to comparisons.
If we don’t learn how to be happy with the things God has done for us, we will end up depressed.
Lack of contentment can lead us into temptation to do bad things in order to get what we want. The devil is working to make sure that we are not grateful for God’s blessings.
A lot of people in the world are already doing bad things just to get the lifestyle they desire.
If we work with all honesty and put our trust in God, he will give us the life we hope for.
We have to learn how to make plans and be financially responsible so that we do not end up in debt. Work on our behaviors so that we can have the right people around us (relationships and marriage).
