I rejoice greatly in the Lord that at last you
have renewed your concern for me.
Indeed, you have been concerned, but you
had no opportunity to show it. I am not
saying this because I am in need, for I have
learned to be content whatever the
I know what it is to be in need, and I know
what it is to have plenty. I have learned the

God frequently meets our needs through
OTHERS, but we cannot DEPEND on others
to meet all our needs.
“Whatever the circumstances” strips sway
any and all EXCUSES for discontent.
I’ll be happy IF ONLY…the problem is there
will always be another IF ONLY
Contentment is an attitude INDEPENDENT of
The secret of
contentment is not about
being SELF-sufficient, but
Paul’s contentment is independent of his
circumstances only because of his
DEPENDENCE on Christ.

BELONGS to God the easier to OFFER it to
