Youthfulness comes with many fascinations that fuel your curiosity or ambition. Mine were two: WEALTH, an attraction; and DEATH, a dread.
How much would one acquire in life that would be enough? OR is life just an endless journey of seeking more? One Marxist I once admired summed it all: “Unequals war to attain equality; equals scheme to gain superiority. That is the mindset that drives social revolutions”
There is a word our world, even Believers, have forgotten, it is called CONTENTMENT “an emotional state of deep satisfaction that comes from being at ease in one’s situation” And this is not accepting all things as one’s fate , that would be FATALISM!
True CONTENTMENT flows from GODLINESS*; it is an expression of absolute faith in a God who knows, loves, cares, provides and preserves. *”…Godliness with contentment is great gain*. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it…” 1Tim.1:6 -11
