before I get into my topic I ask... is there a difference between contentment and satisfaction....is being content more like I am happy with what I have and satisfaction mean I am looking for more? or are they the same in meaning?
well I chose this topic because we all tend to want life to be a certain way....
Christians we are to be a light to the world and in that sense Christians make life brighter at the cost of being persecuted. rejected...abandoned...ignored...mistreated...negl ected...and other things but we preach teach witness and love our enemies and all the hurt for the sake that Jesus died for all creation.
now I wanted to enlighten us to the fact that although
people kill...steal...cheat...lie...and do all manner of evil
we shouldn't complain that life is hard...because great is our reward in heaven if we humble ourselves and serve God and do His will...with a pure heart (Blessed are t pure in heart for they shall see God) and if we sin...to repent and ask forgiveness to Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord that God may forgive us our sins...
...and yet sometimes we just with life were very easy...rather having to deal with all the evil that like to hide within the darkness...but remember once again that Jesus wanted us not to "crave simplicity" and not to be lazy.
The sometime we want life to be a fairy tale...Certainly heaven is the answer to all our prayers ...but neither life nor heaven is a fairytale...they are real and not dream.... and Heaven also called Paradise is certainly a secret God has kept from us and yet we know that it is a beautiful place for it is God's home.
lastly sometimes we get to wishing for more time on earth or a better life...or for things we can't afford....we shouldn't care about material goods or material things so much as thing that God gives us like wisdom knoowledge...love..the capacity to understand more about spiritual things...spiritual gifts that God has given us....the many blesses he continues to bestow upon us....yes some things in life are free....yet priceless....
If we life so much we forget God... yet if we are will to sacrifice our life for our GOD ... God in His love shall give us eternal life... for it is written on a lesser scale... "greater love than hath no man than this...that he give His life for a friend" we should be content... satisfaction....? I don't know if that's the same thing
