Reframe Your Contentment
In Philippians 4:11-13, Paul tells us, "I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content
whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength."
Jesus changes the way we view the world and what we have. When we see the world through the lens of eternity, we realize that we already have enough. We do not feel the need to be constantly striving for more; instead, we are satisfied and content.
For this week's 1X challenge, take an envelope and put something inside of it. This is totally your choice -- it can be money, a gift card, an encouraging note, or whatever you feel called to put in it. Then, you are going to give it away to someone with a joy-filled heart!
Share your story of what you were called to put in the envelope and how it impacted the person that you gave it to!
