DISCONTENTMENT: “Dissatisfaction that I have with what I have”.
What is the relationship between discontentment and awareness?
“But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.”
I Timothy 6:6-11(NIV) DISCONTENTMENT IS DANGEROUS.
“Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.”
(I Timothy 6:18)
“In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.” (I Timothy 6:19)
