Bible Text: James 5:1-16 |


What does it take for you and me to live with contentment? How much is enough? For the Apostle Paul, food and clothing was enough (1 Timothy 6:6-10). Being a Christian with money is a huge responsibility. Just living a respectable life is not enough. God wants more from us. He wants us to use our money for good, for others, and for God. Paul said God gave him the strength to live contentedly (Philippians 4:12-13) regardless of the circumstances. Pastor David Roper said, “Our task today is just to accept things as they are and to be content, knowing that in the love, wisdom, and providence of God this moment is a good as it can possibly be.”
