We live in a world where innovation is at an all-time high. It seems that every week a newer version of something you just purchased is on the market. It’s bigger and better and it fuels a feeling of discontentment. How can we live with simplicity in a world that forever tempts us to be discontent with what we have and to fill our lives with more?
Thankfully, the Bible has a lot to say about contentment. In the next few weeks, students will discover biblical principles for simplicity and contentment and it begins with a focus on Jesus. By the end of this unit, we will be able to say with the apostle Paul, “In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being content—whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need. I am able to do all things through him who strengthens me” - Philippians 4:12-13.
