This devotion may be helpful setting your priorities for the week!
Happiness lies in the heart, rather than in the purse!
(Charles Spurgeon, “A Good Start!”)
Contentment with your lot, and confidence in God–will make life peaceful and happy! A dinner of herbs with contentment, will yield a flavor of satisfaction unknown to those who eat the fattened ox.
It is better to be happy than to be rich–happiness lies in the heart, rather than in the purse!
It is not what a man has, but what a man is–which will decide his bliss or woe in both this life and the next.
“ Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need!” Philippians 4:11-12
