This scripture is a great reminder that contentment or fulfillment comes from Jesus and our relationship with him. When our relationship is poor or not where it should be, we will thirst for worldly items or seek comfort in places we shouldn’t. We may not even realize that is what we are doing since the “culture” around us reinforces that we shouldn’t be content. God calls us though to find contentment in Him and rely on Him for our needs.
1. What worldly item or comfort are you seeking?
2. Thinking about the item identified above, what can you do differently in order to find contentment?
Challenge: Based on the insight you had above, take the step to find contentment in God.
