Welcome Back to the Final Week of our study of the Book of Philippians here at the Womens Bible Café™! Over the last few weeks we have been studying What Matters Most: A Study of Philippians by Karen Ehman. The rich wisdom we have received in our personal times of study have been reflected in the inspirational small group discussions that we share daily in our Facebook groups. As we close this letter written by the Apostle Paul so many years ago, we are reminded of what it means to be truly content with our lives as well as how to gain contentment through an attitude of daily gratitude for all of God’s rich and wonderful blessings.
Here are the Highlights from this week’s lesson:
- Contentment is wanting nothing more than you already have.
- Contentment is being “satisfied to the point that I am no longer disturbed or disquieted.”
- Contentment is something that we need to cultivate.
- Gratitude is the foundation of contentment.
- “Comparisons kill contentment.”
- Contentment brings a deep and lasting peace.
- We can be content in any and every situation as we linger in God’s presence.
Beloved, God longs for your life to be marked by His peace. That happens when we learn, as Paul did, the secret of being content in any and every situation. The first step in doing so is to understand God’s deep and lasting love for you. May you know the extravagant love of the Father as you learn to grow in grace and peace.
