Manna For Today: Friday, August 19, 2016
I Timothy 6:6 – Now godliness with contentment is great gain.
When we are discontent, we find ourselves:
1. Fighting against God.
Proverbs 19:3 – The foolishness of a man twists his way, and his heart frets against the LORD.
2. In a state of constant murmuring and complaining.
John 6:43 – Jesus therefore answered and said to them, “Do not murmur among yourselves.”
3. Displeasing God.
I Corinthians 10:10 – …nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer.
4. Discontentment leads to a dead end.
Luke 15:14 – But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want.
5. We should follow God’s instruction!
Philippians 2:14 – Do all things without complaining and disputing…
Peace and blessings!
