1. Loved this as I struggle with it constantly. I read somewhere that parents tend to be annoyed thar tkheir children, when given a gift, will always say “more” instead of “thank you”. And that yet… we do it to our Father as well!

  2. Love,love,love this word! We now live in a very small patio home! We are retired and wanted a simple life. Very opposite from our past. The contentment in Christ is truly Iike no other:). Keeping up with the Jones’s was exhausting!

  3. Jenn, you bring me preaching (in a warm way) that I need. I agree with all you’ve said. I definitely have my faults but I find pleasure in hard work. My mother (rest her soul) always said if you don’t fall asleep exhausted then you didn’t earn your sleep. My husband and work hard together, that’s what brings us together. We don’t compare to others, we choose to do the hard work ourselves. Great post, Jenn you are sure a blessing❤️

  4. Such a beautiful post. One to be read, reread, revisited, and remembered. Excited to read more in the series to come!

  5. I love this post so much. I think comparison is the enemy of contentment. Truly. I think we have SO MUCH that is given to us and if we focus on that—contentment comes more easily.

    blessings friend!

    PS Love this series!

  6. Jennifer, this is so inspirational! I like point #5 where you talk about needs versus wants and stopping to ask yourself WHY do I want this. That is so important. Thanks for this lesson and I’m looking forward to the second part of your series.

  7. This was such a fantastic post!! I really like how you addressed the mindset that contentment doesn’t equal complacency! I had never even realized that I sometimes connect the two. For the most part I’m a much more content person than I used to be, but I’m far from complacent in almost every area of my life!! This was so spot on! Can’t wait for the other posts!

  8. This series has been long but if you are still there you have Inspired me. I did not come across this until by 4:00AM when I got this very topic as a message but in a different phrase “Contentment but not Complacency” and trying to look it up I came here. It has really helped me and I praise God for you. More anointing in Jesus Name.
