Guide to a Joyful Heart
Tip of the Day:
Let our conversations (way of life) be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for He hath said; I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Hebrews 13:5, KJV
Be content. That is so much easier said then done. We want new shiny things, beautiful things, things that will bring us joy. However, God says be content. Covetousness, to want what someone else has, is a sin.
Jesus taught us to be content. There’s always going to be something newer, shinier, prettier. If we are continually running after the newest, best thing, we will never appreciate what we have. We are also saying to God, “what you have given me is not enough”. God’s beauty is all around us. A daisy doesn’t say I’m sad, because I don’t have the regal beauty of a rose, but delights in her own simple beauty.
The point is God made us beautiful in our own way. He knows our needs, even before we ask. He will bless us as he sees fit. New shiny material things are short lived, Jesus brings peace and joy that is everlasting. He will never leave you or forsake you, Dear One.
