Contentment

I do what is right. I serve God. I follow him. What payment do I get? I see those who live evil lives prosperous and rich. Why do they get the good life and I have to be content with what I have?

First question, am I really that good? Am I better than other people? No, I have my own personal struggles and sins that plague me every single day. So accordingly, I don’t deserve riches and comforts. But riches and comfort are exactly what God promised me. Heaven is a place where I will never be in need, never have a sinful desire for what is not mine, never be overwhelmed by my guilt… ever. Heaven is an amazing promise to sinful person like me.

The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; he is their stronghold in time of trouble. (Psalm 37:39)

Considering heaven, I can be content now with the many blessings God gives me. I really do have much more than basic comforts to keep me satisfied. I have a wonderful family to play Monopoly with. I have a lot of great tools to do my building projects with. I have a warm home in the cold winter with a comfy bed. I have a room in my heavenly home that has much more than I can imagine keeping me satisfied and happy.
