Proverbs 2: 1-11
One of the kingdom challenges for all believers in our current world is to be content with our lives.
So much of current advertising and communication is to tell us how much we need the new products that are being developed. This is predicated by the message that we should have a growing dissatisfaction with whatever we have and its limited effectiveness. We should demand the newer and better option. We have become a ’throw away’ society. Get rid of things not because they are worn out but because they are old. The Bible teaches the polar opposite to this misguided view.

1 Godly contentment has the value of hidden treasure – vrs 4
