TOPIC: CHRISTIAN CONTENTMENT.
TEXT: “A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.”(Psalms 37: 16).
Contentment is the acknowledgement and satisfaction of reaching capacity. We lack contentment because we do not live a life of gratitude and take so much for granted. Lack of contentment is the gateway to many crimes today. Internet fraud, kidnapping, armed robbery, money laundering, prostitution, examination malpractice and certificate racketeering are common practices among youngsters today. They are all dubious ways of amassing wealth.
It is important to note as youth that the little you have is better than the riches of those who amass wealth by fraudulent means. Accumulation of wealth or meeting your needs in unrighteous ways attracts the wrath of God. Are you diligent in your studies or planning to cheat in order to come out with good grades? Are you into crime? God is angry with the wicked every day. Desist from such practices and give your life to Christ. Remember that godliness with contentment is great gain. The Scripture says, Better is little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble therewith (Proverbs 15:16). Be happy with what you have.
CHALLENGE: Lack of contentment is the gateway to crimes.
PRAYER: Help me Lord to live a life free from greed.
