Contentment: The Life that really is Life

Morning: Psalms 30, 32; Proverbs 25:15-28; 1 Timothy 6:6-21
Some people tell me they’re ‘down-sizing’ … they have accumulated too much.  St. Paul says ‘great gain’ comes from contentment since “we brought nothing into the world and it is certain we can take nothing out of it.”  Shun riches and the love of money, says Paul; instead, “pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, gentleness … fight the good fight of faith”.  Then he encourages the rich in good works, generosity and sharing … so that they may have “the life that really is life.”  In other words … seeking Life’s fulfilment in riches is an illusion.
