What is it you feel entitled to?

“He that deserves nothing should be content with anything.” –Charles Spurgeon

What is it you feel entitled to? Is it a good-looking spouse, a two-story house, 2.5 kids and 3 cars? God never guaranteed a Christian anything; quite the contrary, Jesus told the rich young ruler to “sell everything” he owned and follow him. Jesus wasn’t against stuff; he simply wanted this man’s heart, as he wants our hearts. Once we wholeheartedly choose to follow him, all things good come from God—your marriage, your mortgage, and your money. Let’s learn to live gratefully for God’s many blessings.

…For I have learned to be content with whatever I have (Philippians 4:11, NIV).
