The Contented Heart

Hebrews 13:1-10

Contentment can be illusive. It is lost so easily through the desire for things. This is where we find the author of Hebrews admonishing early believers to keep their focus on Christ, so that they might remain true and not fall back into old beliefs. The writer’s desire was that they would remember their fellow believers, those less fortunate, strangers, and those imprisoned for their belief in Christ.

Skillfully tucked into these verses we find the foundation for contentment and the provision God has for His faithful children: “Be content with what you have, because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’ So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?’” (Hebrews 13:5b-6).

Keep your eyes upon Christ Jesus and you will find contentment and satisfaction. Live the life, the simple life, by following in the footsteps of Him who has led the way. Set the example for those who come behind you so that they may also find a contented heart.
