Scripture of the Day - November 3, 2012

Philippians 4:11  ... I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
Paul had to learn to be content is whatever state he was in. It doesn't come naturally for any of us. 
Human nature leads us to constantly strive for bigger, better, more, and of course comfort. These things make us happy and content...but only for a while...the novelty wears off and we find ourselves striving yet again for more and more. 
But what happens when we are not able to achieve these natural goals? What happens when all seems to go against us and the bottom falls out of the barrel? What happens to our attitude? 
(To be the meantime, think about what makes you happy and content.)
