We are not satisfied. Think about it. As a child we can't wait until we are a teenager able to drive, as a teen we want to be an adult. As an adult it's to be married. Then we want kids. Then we can't wait for the kids to leave home. Then with an empty nest we want them to visit! With old age we want to be young again. We are not satisfied. I think contentment is a difficult virtue. Why? Because there is NOTHING on earth that will satisfy our deepest longing. We long to see God. We won't be satisfied until we do. God holds all the power and protection we need. He satisfies us and brings contentment. Read Psalm 17:13-15. Take joy in your age, your job, friends and the simple pleasures each day brings. Take joy, my friend. Take joy. When you are tempted to be dissatisfied, find contentment in God.
