Contentment

This page in my altered hymnal has a theme of contentment prompted by the latest challenge at Salt.

The words around the edge read: Paul says “for I have learned in whatsoever state I am, to be content.” I desire to be this way all the time, but sometimes contentment eludes me. Then I find it again.

Also the imagery is related to Matthew 6:26: Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

This verse is a great reminder to me that God will take care of my needs, and my response should be contentment and gratefulness for this care, not worry or greed.
