Today's Bible Reading:

The Challenge of Wanting What We Already Have

Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. (Phil 4:11-13)

Contentment is learned. Frederick Keonig wrote, “We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”

Why not take that challenge personally this week? You may just discover that it’s better to want what you have than to have what you want.
