Learning to Live with My “C” Word

November 24, 2020

There’s a “C” word I’ve been dealing with for a while now.

Trying to learn to live with it. Maybe you have been, too.

Sure brings a lotta changes with it.

It’s not a disease or an illness.

In fact, Scripture says it’s a good thing —

Godliness with contentment

is great gain.

 — 1st Timothy 6:6 

— For those of us who habitually spend time and effort on things like goal setting, planning, and moving forward, that C word, contentment, can be slippery to the point of elusive.

But elsewhere, St. Paul said he had learned to be content (Philippians 4:11). Seems that rather than being an innate gift, contentment was something he learned.

That gives me hope, how about you?

Lotta lessons still to be learned.

Especially the week of Thanksgiving.

And contentment this particular week of Thanksgiving, factoring in our current pandemic and its attendant restrictions and recommended changes to traditions? Yeah.

Whole lotta lessons still to be learned.
