“keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have…” Hebrews 13:5.
Relish what you have rather than resent what you’re missing.
I love this concept and think it’s so true of God’s kingdom and the way Jesus calls us to live.
In this book I recently finished reading, the aforementioned - Colin Creel - wrote of the concept of giving out, not from your cup, but from your saucer. We cant but give out from the overflow of our hearts because God gives us all we need and so much more. Its his loving kindness that compells us to live as jesus did. For he longs to give good gifts to his children (Matt 7:9-11) and he knows what we need before we even ask (Matt 6:32).
So then just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness (col 2:6+7).
May we overflow with thankfulness for all that we have and all that he gives.
