"I know what it's like to not have what I need. I also know what it's like to have more than I need. I have learned the secret of being content no matter what happens. I am content whether I am well fed or hungry. I am content whether I have more than enough or not enough. I can do everything by the power of Christ. He gives me strength" (Philippians 4:12-13). Paul speaks about being content in everything because Jesus alone is enough. By making that relationship our highest priority, and recognizing it above worldly matters, we can find contentment in everything.
