Bible Encouragement Savoring Life

Finding Contentment and Great Gain – John Piper and HGTV

What is it that deep down you find yourself “thirsting” for, precisely? How can the glory of God—and his intervention at the cross—truly satisfy?

I read these questions in a devotional by John Piper about Living in the Light: Sex, Money, and Power.  I didn’t read the book.  I just read snippets from it that have been made into a five day devotional on BibleGateway.com.  Now I am interested in the book.

Since I just finished watching a show on HGTV, You Live in What, right now the answer is simple. I’ve been lusting over these gorgeous living spaces. But it’s more than just owning such a space. It’s the idea that I could comfortably relax and find peace and joy and a slower life in such a space.

But the money to buy those spaces would not bring peace, joy, or a slower life.

God supplies all of those things.

God has supplied all of those things.

Godliness with CONTENTMENT truly is GREAT GAIN.
