In today’s world of limitless opportunities, distractions, and challenges; are you content? Have you asked yourself that question lately? Well, if you haven’t you should because if you’re not; it’s something that you defiantly should be striving towards. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying its easy, I’m just saying it’s worthy of your attention.
In this message from Pastor Steven Furtick, he shares what he calls “The ConTENtment Commandments”.
- Thou Shalt Remember to Rejoice
- Thou Shalt Refuse to Resent
- Thou Shalt Appreciate All Seasons
- Thou Shalt Keep A Secret Stash
- Thou Shalt Not Confuse the Supply with the Source
- Thou Shalt Not Downplay Disappointment
- Thou Shalt Recognize
- Thou Shalt Release
- Thou Shalt Receive
- Thou Shalt Remain
We should live in contentment each and every day but we don’t because we buy into what the world tells us we should have. We live in comparison to one another and that makes it impossible to live a content live.
Today, social media is one of the biggest contributors to our restlessness in ourselves. We compare our lives to a snapshot of a moment in time of a complete stranger without truly understanding their journey. But we must be like Paul when he said in Philippians 4:11-13, “11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
I know you will enjoy this message as Pastor Furtick explains these ten commandments to you.
May Your Steps Fulfill Their Purpose and That You Be Content.
