There is great gain in godliness combined with contentment; for we brought nothing into the world, so that we can take nothing out of it.
1 Timothy 6:6-7
The great secret in learning to be content is to realize that you don’t really own anything. It’s all on loan to you for about 80 years! You didn’t bring a single thing into this world, and you’re not going to carry anything out of it, either. You just get to use it while you’re here on earth. The Bible calls that stewardship. You are the manager or steward of what God allows you to have while you’re here, but it’s not really yours. When you understand that you’re just the manager of the many blessings God allows into your life, you hold those blessings in open generous hands, anxious and ready to share those blessing with others!
