15 years ago a friend of mine was living in sin. When confronted about it she said “but I’m happy and that’s what really matters.”
This morning the Lord brought that story back to my mind as I read “But godliness with contentment is great gain.” (1 Timothy 6:6).
My friend’s happiness (contentment) didn’t make the sin okay. It was only clouding her judgment.
Contentment is beneficial to us only when it lines up with the Word. Otherwise it leads to substantial loss.
Allow the truths of God to lead you, to be what makes you content and then you’ll be blessed.
