Bible Quotes
Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
(Psalm 37:4) ESV

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
(Matthew 6:33) ESV

Soldiers also asked him, “And we, what shall we do?” And he said to them, “Do not extort money from anyone by threats or by false accusation, and be content with your wages.”

And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
(Luke 12:15) ESV

Nor grumble, as some of them did and were destroyed by the Destroyer.
(1 Corinthians 10:10) ESV

I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
(Philippians 4:10-13) ESV

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
(1 Thessalonians 5:18) ESV

Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
(1 Timothy 6:6-10) ESV

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
(Hebrews 13:5) ESV

Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
(1 Peter 5:7) ESV1

Discontent and the Bible

There is a push in our world to do more than the other person. Most people want to be better than anyone else and make a name for themselves. These people lead a life of discontentment. If we are not careful, we can become caught up with this movement and become discontent with what we have.


When we are discontent, we can ruin the relationships we have. James 4:1 tells us, “From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?” When we focus on ourselves and our own needs, we can fail to see the needs of others. If we would seek to meet the needs of others instead of our own needs, we could avoid much strife and fighting. 

Discontent life can cause us to hurt the feeling of others. The wrong spirit of competition with their egoistic attitude sometimes causes us to treat others selfishly with the intention to down the person just to make ourselves on top of them. 

The harder the ladder to get on top, the greater destruction will be on others reputation. However, to get on top is the way down— James 4:6, 10; I Peter 5:5-6

The root of problem is in your inner man “your lusts that war in your members?” The Bible says, “Let no man seek his own but every man another’s wealth” I Corinthians 10:24

Discontent life can ruin the relationship of the couple, family, friends, church mates, even self. 

Discontent life can be cured by looking and living the life of Christ who think not Himself but of us that He gave His life and obedient unto death. 

Paul in his letter to the Philippians, he exhort "them ye be likeminded, having the same love, being in one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others"- Philippians 2:2-4. Then after Paul gave the exhortation to humility through Christ as he said "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:. Who made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of man: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:" -Philippians 2:5-9. 


Also, when we are discontent, we can many times lose our integrity. First Timothy 6:9-10 says, “But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” Many people in today’s society would think nothing of lying to make a profit. God wants us to be honest in all we do!

When a person is discontent with what they have in life, it will often drive them to do things they never thought of doing. Even so, when we live a discontented life, we may end up ruining our relationships or losing our integrity. 

The Bible says, “But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content” I Timothy 6:6-8. Therefore, we must trust not in uncertain riches of this world but in the Living God who giveth us richly all things to enjoy— I Timothy 6:17.

Are you content with where God has placed you and with what He has given you? It is a dangerous thing to begin comparing your life with someone else’s. God desires that we look to Him and be content with Him. Ask Him to help you be content as you live for Him today.2
