It is Lovely to be Content

Lovely Flowers can make you feel content

1 Timothy: Chapter 6 verse 6

But godliness with contentment is great gain.


To be content is something wonderful, we are to be content in all circumstances but most times we are definitely not! What do you think is the reason why we are not content? Could it be that we are not walking in godliness? I think that may be a lot to do with it. whatever is going on in your life today try to be content with what you have, try not to yearn for things that cannot be. Let us praise The Lord for what we already have.

A Snow Flake Pattern

We are all individuals, all different as people, just as snowflakes are different but are still snowflakes. God made everyone according to a pattern. So we are made, according to a pattern. We are made in the image of God.

Well there we are then, we need to be content with being who we are especially knowing that God has made us to be who we are. So let us try to be content today in the knowledge that Jesus loves us and has sent His Holy Spirit to help and enable us to try to be content while we live on this Earth. Let us appreciate our Families and Friends, our Workmates, our Pets. Let us be content just where we are and then we can feel the peace of The Lord in our daily lives.

Rejoice in being Corrected

Father & Son

Oil Painting by J.M.R.Larman.

Proverbs:  24

He who spares the rod

hates his son

but he who loves him

is careful to discipline him.


This does not mean that we should go about hitting our children with a rod until they cower before us.  It does mean that we must discipline them in a way that they will understand not to do that bad thing again.  As children of God did you know that God disciplines us?  Because He loves us He is constantly correcting us, that is how it should be with us and our natural children.  They must not be allowed to do just as they like, when and how they like, neither can we in God’s Kingdom.  Today let us rejoice that Our Father in Heaven loves us so much that He disciplines us with love.

From the book ‘Drink from the Cup’by J.M.R.Larman.




Being disciplined by our Parents is not a joyful thing but it is meant  to teach us something.

Well if we do not listen or change our ways we go round and round doing the same thing until at last we decide that it is not worth aggregating people or friends.

We have to stop wanting our own way if we are doing something wrong.

Today let us think before we do something awful.

Let us stop so that we need not get chastised by our parents or friends or even chastised from our Heavenly Father for committing some awful sin.


Also we may like to think how best to chastise our children, whether they be young or older.  Sometimes they still need us to correct them but mostly with love.

Have a lovely Day.
