Stored Up Contentment

The green paper we grasp in our hands allows us to buy clothes for our closets (stockpiling what we often don’t need), cars that we drive, and it slips gold rings on our fingers. I am convinced, none of these items reflect wealth.

The cashier asked the man in the grocery store, “Do you have everything you need?”

He looked at her, nodded at those in line behind him, smiled and said, “I not only have everything I need, I have everything I want.”

Peace comes with knowing that our needs are, and will be, met.

Contentment is living life to it’s fullest, just as it is, with a sense that our most valuable personal treasures are the same as those we hold in our soul.

You make known to me the path of life;

you will fill me with joy in your presence,

with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

(Psalm 16:11 NIV)

What treasures do you want to store up?
