Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other. Galatians 5:26

If gratitude is the twin of contentment, envy is its enemy. Envy and contentment cannot co-exist in a person's heart because, at its core, envy is dissatisfaction with God's provision and lust for something He has given to another.

Ironically, the objects of our envy will never satisfy us. Have you ever attained something you had envied only to discover that it no longer held value for you? Then in an effort to derive more satisfaction, you began to flaunt what you had, hoping that others would now envy you. Envy and conceit go hand-in-hand, spreading like a virus to others.

Many of us will spend our entire lives struggling with and perpetuating this cycle. How can we ever break free and find lasting contentment? Jesus Christ can break the cycle. The key is to esteem our treasures in proportion to their true value. The more Christ takes His rightful place as the greatest treasure, the less anything else matters by comparison. Contentment quietly settles into our hearts, and Christ becomes our all in all. But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. 1 Timothy 6:6-7

Insight: Each one of us has a void in our heart that we have tried to fill in order "to be content". God designed us that way so that we'd feel the need for Him. I bet you can think of many things that you tried to fill this void with that disappointed you. Jesus fills this void perfectly.

Dear Lord, Help me to realize that I'll never be content in this life until I turn from my sins and receive Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:11-12 cheers
