... a weekly letter of encouragement.


August 2, 1993

Good Morning!

CONTENTMENT:

"Accepting the role God has assigned me to play in His sovereign scheme of things."

"Doing the best I can with what I have - and leaving the results with God."

"Godliness with CONTENTMENT is great gain." (I Timothy 6:6)

As a Nation, Israel was DISCONTENT with Her God-given lot. So She grumbled:

- Forgot God's works

- Rejected His counsel

- Despised the "pleasant land"

- Did not believe His word (Psalm 106:13, 14, 24, 25)

Her seemingly innocuous attitude of DISCONTENTMENT led to:

IDOLATRY - "They made a calf...and worshipped a molten image."

SECULARISM - "They forgot God." *

MURDER - "They even sacrificed their sons and daughters to the demons."

(Psalm 106:19-21, 37,38)

So...How are you doing in the CONTENTMENT department?

- Thanking God... or grumbling?

At the root of DISCONTENTMENT lies a spirit of rebellion against God's sovereignty. In the case of Israel it led to IDOLATRY, SECULARISM and eventually to the MURDER of her children.

Where might it lead you?

Have a great week!
