gratitude and contentment
November 5, 2011
i was just feeding josiah his favorite – split pea soup. he eagerly dove in to every bite. his sister sat next to him at the table, eating her bowl of soup.
at one point, josiah looked at her and began to protest loudly – seeing her eating and hollering to have some.
the funny thing was, his spoonful was right in front of his face.
he just wasn’t looking.
i thought, how often do i miss contentment in MY life, because i am comparing myself and looking to another?
sure, josiah’s soup wasn’t exactly the same as his big sister’s … his was pureed and without the chunks of ham … but his was good and perfect for him.
“but godliness with contentment is great gain.” 1 timothy 6:6
