Perhaps, we need to check our devotion to the scripture (Acts 2:42,43; Rev 1:3; 3:14 – 22).
TPaul faced the hardships of being: in want, shipwrecked, beaten, imprisoned, falsely accused, and uncertain of life, itself. Yet, he says he learned to be content whatever his circumstances. This same kind of contentment is available for us today, if we are willing to hear the message of what Paul tells the saints in Philippi – the Lord is good and He is near! (Php 4:10-13)
