The Danger Of Discontent December 6, 2019

A friend remarked to me recently that men often struggle with discontentment. It is one of the deceiver’s ways of leading us to things that God has not chosen for us. Discontentment at its core is just the sin nature – desiring what we cannot have and thinking we know what is best.

We live in a world of restless people. So much of that restlessness grows out of the soil of discontentment. And so people look to some new thing or for some different person to fill the emptiness, when only God can satisfy.

Are you struggling today? Stop looking at the door and look to the throne! You don’t need a “way out” or something better. You need a fresh visit to Heaven’s throne room. Spend time with the Lord and you will be reminded that only He can meet your deepest needs.

But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. (1 Timothy 6:6-10)

Remains of Tel Motza. It was discovered by construction workers as they built a bridge across a valley. As you can see, parts of the site were destroyed in the construction process. The site is of interest because excavators found a small, fully functional replica of the Jerusalem Temple built here. Photo by John Buckner

Ruins of the Samaritan temple on Mount Gerizim overlooking Shechem. A massive, ancient staircase leads up from the valley floor to the temple. A small remnant of Samaritans lives nearby in a village on the mountain. They still practice their ancient religion.
