Today we shared some Praise Thursday inspiration on the topics of contentment, hospitality and humility.
Brogan shared this one called Less is More:
Sometimes in life we can get caught up in the consumer culture and want more than we have or need. We want the newest thing all the time because of the social stature that comes with it or to impress those in our life. This lifestyle, however, is a bottomless hole and an appetite that can never be fulfilled. If we give into these habits and wants and desires, we can stray into a lifestyle that can never be fulfilled.
So, what does the Bible have to say about this? Check out Proverbs 14:30, that simply says, “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.” Being at peace with what we have in our life, is key to having harmony and peace in our life. Accepting that The Lord has given us all we need and that our desires will never fulfill us is a Biblical principle that can offer a lifestyle that God has promised will give us peace.
Joe shared a devotional from Our Daily Bread called “God’s Embassy,” very close to what some of you have been doing this week in helping others in crisis. Read it by clicking here.
