We live in a highly individualistic, consumeristic society. People have more stuff, disposable income, and free time than ever before.
Most people should be on cloud nine all the time. So why are so many discontent?
Do you want to know what robs people of contentment? Well, to name a few: Always being reminded of what others have (but you don’t); busy schedules; problems that just can’t get solved; not being the person you want to be; constant comparison to others, in person or online; a lack of purpose…
Underneath it all is a spiritual problem—with biblical solutions. Jesus offers us peace. Paul says, “I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.” In a 4-part series I just began, we explore how.
It’s called “Contentment: Being at peace in a world of more, more, more.”
For Part 1 on September 8, 2019, we look more closely at the invisible thief who sets out to remind you what others have (but you don’t). The antidote is found in Ephesians. When you focus on what you do have, you’re less likely to be downcast by what you don’t!
Part 1 is called “Spiritual Billionaires.” Take a look! The video is here (and the audio-only link is underneath).
