Some Thoughts On Contentment From Various Authors

“The very nature of Joy makes nonsense of our common distinction between having and wanting.”

C.S. Lewis

“Real contentment must come from within. You and I cannot change or control the world around us, but we can change and control the world within us.”

Warren Wiersbe

“Let us act on what we have, since we have not what we wish.”

John Henry Newman

“Instead of complaining at his lot, a contented man is thankful that his condition and circumstances are no worse than they are. Instead of greedily desiring something more than the supply of his present need, he rejoices that God still cares for him. Such a one is “content” with such as he has.”

A. W. Pink

“There are many of us that are willing to do great things for the Lord, but few of us are willing to do little things.”

Dwight L. Moody
