A Godly Mother Part 5

I love this drawing. It screams contentment to me. Look at the smiles on their faces! There is much in this picture to be discontent about but this sweet family is choosing contentment! 

Paul makes it clear in the book of Philippians that contentment is LEARNED. All of us must learn to be content because we are bent toward discontentment. We don’t have to learn discontentment. It comes very naturally. I think discontentment is what led to the fall. Eve was not content with what she had. Many of us are like that. We have to pursue contentment and learn it! It will not just come our way. Everyone has reasons to be discontent. The difference between content mamas and discontent mamas is not that the content mamas have all sorts of things to be content about it's that the content ones pursue contentment and look at what they do have and not at what they don't have. CHOOSE contentment today!

1 Tim. 6:6-8 says: “Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.
