Contentment

Contentment is something that seems to be in short supply in our world. Our culture doesn’t encourage contentment, instead pushing us to think we need the newest and biggest and most expensive to be happy. But true contentment—the kind of contentment Paul is referencing from his prison cell—is found when we admit we cannot do anything in ourselves and instead rest in Christ’s sufficiency. Spiritual maturity is never more obvious than when a person evidences true contentment.
