Ramblings of the Ole Parson – Robert E. Thompson, Sr.

Contentment

The inspired  Apostle Paul wrote to the young pastor: 1 Ti 6:6 “But godliness with contentment is great gain.”  

John D. Rockefeller who lived in the later 19th and the early 20th centuries, was considered the richest man in the USA.  He was asked, “How much money does it take to satisfy?”  His answer was, “Just a little more.”  

In other words, satisfaction was not found in money and natural things.  We are created with a God-vacuum in the heart that only He can satisfy.

If you know that you are at peace with God and men, what more could you desire?  The song writer put it this way, “God is enough.”
