“Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:11-13) The definition of contentment from the biblical perspective [Holman Bible Dictionary]: “An internal satisfaction, which does not demand changes in external circumstances.” We would all agree that in today’s day and age, this is not the way most people view life. The rich and powerful continue to strive for more money and power and our greed seems to never be fulfilled. Success and satisfaction are measured in terms of having more than the person next to you. When asked once, "How much money is enough money?" John D. Rockefeller replied, "Just a little bit more." Are you content? This is a question that we must ask ourselves. If we are genuine believers in Jesus Christ then, peace of heart and mind should be ours to enjoy. This upcoming conference, our goal is to direct everyone’s attention to our heavenly Father, our God, who has limitless resources and has promised to always provide for our needs. Of course, our problem is that we often do not understand or realize the difference between need and want. The basic needs that we all share are food, clothing, and shelter. All “things” beyond that are nice, but not absolutely necessary and if we are not careful, our sinful attitude of “wanting it all” will sooner or later take its toll in our spiritual lives.
