"Godliness is "doing what is pleasing" to God.
It seems that you cant have the one without the other. Doing what is pleasing to God will bring great contentment in your life.
One dictionary defines contentment as “the state of being mentally or emotionally satisfied with things as they are.” Today it is rare that we find anyone who is truly content with his or her condition in life" ...including myself.
1 Timothy 6:10 says the love of money is the root of all evil and 1 Timothy 6:11 says to flee and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. •
Discontentment comes from not having what we want, and mostly what we want costs money, and can cause us to love it / covet it. In my latest time of quiet and downtime, I have been led to studying contentment and evaluating mine. Wants and desires are in us. To me, it's all about order: First, please God and be content. Then, make that money. Can't be vice versa... Thank God for grace and mercy and forgiveness 🙌🏽 •
