I was milking the other day, and I noticed this one cow. In front of her was a large pile of fresh feed. But she had her head through the stall eating her neighbors pile. And I thought, “How foolish! Her own feed is right in front of her. Why would she steal her neighbors?”
And then I thought of the many times I’d done that. Wished for something someone else had, when right in front of me there was plenty. Philippians 4:11 says,” Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.”
Wow! That’s quite commendable to be able to say that! I don’t know if I’ll ever arrive at that point. But it’s something to work towards. And a content person is so much lovelier to be around.
How about you? Do you struggle to be content? What are some things you do to help you be content? I’d love to hear from you 🙂I hope your week goes well! I have a prayer request. Please pray for a family that lost their young daughter. She is a friend and classmate of my oldest daughter. My heart aches for the family. I just had to think, it could be my daughter. We are not guaranteed another day. So please keep them in your prayers, especially as they have a viewing and funeral to get through this week.
