The Secret To Contentment (With Greg Laurie)

My friend Max Lucado says, “The good life begins not when circumstances change but when our attitude toward them does.”

We think if we had a nicer car or a bigger house or a larger salary or a new face or new body, then we’d be content.

Writing to the Christians in Philippi, the apostle Paul said, “Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little” (Philippians 4:11–12 NLT).

Paul was in difficult circumstances when he wrote these words. He wasn’t spouting theories from an ivory tower. He was under house arrest, writing from the school of hard knocks. Yet Paul found contentment because he rejoiced in the Lord.

Earlier in Philippians 4, he wrote, “Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!” (verse 4 NKJV). He didn’t say that we should rejoice in circumstances. Sometimes that’s hard to do. But Paul did say that we should rejoice in the Lord.
