Several years ago, I planted a new lawn, then I fertilized… then fertilized… then fertilized some more. When the grass matured the lawn was beautiful, green, and luscious, but it was so thick I could hardly mow it!
Bigger, shinier, and/or greener, is not always better. Sometimes the cost (I’m not necessarily talking about dollars) of the things we covet are more than we can afford. Sure, I had a beautiful lawn, but it cost me a lot of sweat!
Being content is the same as being at peace. If we focus on God, knowing He will never leave us nor forsake us, we will be able to say, “I got a peaceful easy feeling, and I know He won’t let me down. ‘Cause I’m already standing… on the greenest lawn in town.”
Let your conduct be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have: for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you. Hebrews 13:5
