Philippians 4:10-13

This afternoon, I would like to talk about the problem of contentment, or the sin of discon-tentment perhaps would be a better title for the message.

We live in a changing world. One man wrote a book entitled "Who switched the price tags?". That is about the way it is today. Things which were valuable and sought after once are no longer thought to be important. Because the values of society are shifting like the sands of a desert, people are growing more and more discontented. People are discontented with their jobs, and employers are discontented with their workers. Husbands and wives discontented with one another. Families are destroyed because parents are discontented with their children and children feel the same way toward their parents.

It is true in the business world, politics, sports, and, perhaps the greatest tragedy of all, it is true among Christians!

I. What Contentment Is Not.

II. What Contentment Is.

III. How Can We Be Content?

Are you a contented this afternoon? If you do not know Christ as your Savior, you will never know true contentment. God's Word has the answer for the sin of discontentment: confession, repentance, and forgiveness.
