Interracial Contentment

“Marriage should be honored by all and the marriage bed kept undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterers. Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, for God has said: “Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:4-5).

Do not wear yourself out to get rich; be wise enough to restrain yourself (Proverbs 23:4).

Naked we come and naked shall we return. So measure your life by the standard that God has set for his creatures with a limited breath. Hell is enlarged daily and many more souls are descending, rather than ascending because God’s plan is rejected and candidates are lovers of pleasure, rather than lovers of God.

Stay the narrow way and enjoy the fruits of love, joy, and peace. There is much power in contentment. Being content is not a vow of poverty. It is a life that measures desires with the reality of the brevity of life. It is a life that discerns desires through the lens of your true home in heaven.

Of course, interracial contentment is not allowing anyone to add unnecessary desires to your life. Never let others dictate what you need. Consult God in everything and be led by Him alone.
