After the Democratic intelligence memo was released this weekend, both sides of the political spectrum have been busy making their case to the public through the news media. Such tension is ratings gold for the media, but when we as consumers consume too much of it, it leads to desperate feelings of discontentment, frustration, and longing. The Bible teaches that we are to rely on God for all blessings and sustain our hope and faith in our relationship with Jesus. In Philippians, it says, “Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” One of the reasons it is so important to read the Bible every day is because it is our connection to Jesus from which we receive peace, wisdom, and happiness— three things we all need more of. Much of society’s ills can be solved by rediscovering how to be content and grateful for the life we have been blessed with. Today, read of your Bible, draw close to the Lord, and be grateful for the many blessings He has bestowed upon you.

“Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” — Philippians 4:11-13 ESV
