Contentment, not Resentment
Be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never forsake you or abandon you.” - Hebrews 13:5 (RSV)
A Cadillac, yes, but the person within needed handicapped parking and was eating at McDonalds—not Morton's. Yet this individual chose a label that I understood to mean: "Happy One." It was a good reminder for me.
Thank you, Lord, for whimsical examples of people who have learned the secret of contentment. Help me to be satisfied, not wishing things perfect, but being thankful and upbeat within life's current realities.
