Keys to Contentment

Key #1 Play the cards you are dealt.

In other word’s bloom where you’re planted.  What you are is God’s gift to you.  What you become is your gift to God.

Key #2 Act yourself into the feeling.

Someone said: you are more likely to act yourself into the feeling, than feel yourself into the acting.

We are all manufacturers.  Some make good, some make trouble, others make only excuses.

The golden rule says, “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31

You will find when you go ahead and play the role you should play, the feeling will come.  Feeling good always comes from doing right.

Key #3 Know your needs and keep them simple.

Some people’s needs are always changing.

Some people don’t know their needs.

Someone said our basic needs are food, water, shelter, and clothes.  Beyond that we need to love someone worth loving and to hold on to something big enough to hold us.  We need to live within our income.  We need to become a part of something bigger than ourselves.

Build your hopes on things eternal.  Hold to God’s unchanging hand.
