Daily Scripture & Question
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 everything through him who gives me strength.
The Holy Bible: New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 1984), Php 4:11–13.
Paul finds contentment in Jesus. So whether he was shipwrecked or in prison or having a great meal with friends around a table he was content. Am I focused on Jesus or my circumstances?
