We all seek contentment, but Christ shows us a higher way. “I’ll be happier when…” Sound familiar? It’s easy to spend our entire lives only looking forward to the next thing. We feel unhappiness and discontentment and think that we’ll be happier only when we graduate, get a new job, get a promotion, get married, have children, buy a house, get the new iPhone, lose 10 pounds, retire, etc. If we never take a second to gain some perspective, we can spend all of our time in the vicious cycle of searching for contentment.
