Be Satisfied With Little

"Affluence is a double-edged sword. The technological advances and creature comforts that come with it are certainly a great blessing. But our contentment can be all too easily buried beneath the quest for more, bigger, and better." - John MacArthur

This is a well-timed article from John MacArthur. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is true that many of us have access to technology and have been adapting to a more techno-centric lifestyle. With it comes worldly temptations such as target ads and an acute perception of the things we no longer have access to. It's easy for our flesh to get ahold of us and drive us towards discontentment. Like Paul, we must sow to the spirit and overcome the flesh to be content in all circumstances (Phil 4:11-13, 1 Tim 6:6-8, Mat 6:31-33, James 4:1-10, 1 Cor 10:13, Luke 12:15, Ecclesiastes 6:9, 2 Corinthians 12:10, Mat 6:33-34, 1 Peter 5:6-7, 1 Corinthians 9:24-27).
