The key to contentment is to limit our wants. For starters, we rarely get all that we want. And second, even when we occasionally do, we often want an increase in quality or quantity of that object. Therefore, the more I want, the more I will have to deal with the temptation toward discontentment. Actually, if we can only focus on our needs, that which God does promise to provide, we are guaranteed contentment. “For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either.  If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content” (1 Tim. 6:7-8).
