Contentment in Christ (Philippians 4:10-13)
We all want a sense of contentment, especially about how much “stuff” we have and how to view it, right? Paul demonstrates such contentment can only be realized through Christ.
I. Joy in Christ drives contentment in this turbulent life (10-11)
II. The “stuff” we have shouldn’t control our contentment (12-13)
III. Generosity with your “stuff” is a way to safeguard contentment (14)

10 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. 11 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. 12 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. 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me. (ESV)
