Recovering the Lost Art of Contentment

The biblical practice of contentment can seem like a lost art—something reserved for spiritual giants but out of reach for the rest of us. In our discontented age—characterized by impatience, overspending, grumbling, and unhappiness—it's hard to imagine what true contentment actually looks (and feels) like. But even the apostle Paul said that he  learned to be content in any and every circumstance. Paul's remarkable contentment was something  grown and  developed over time.

In  Chasing Contentment, Erik Raymond helps us understand what biblical contentment is—the inward gracious spirit that joyfully rests in God's providence—and then how we learn it. Giving us practical guidance for growing in contentment in various areas of our lives, this book will encourage us to see contentment as a priority for all believers. By God's grace, it is possible to pursue the high calling of contentment and anchor our joy in God himself rather than our changing circumstances.

“The source of our quietness is revealed by how we respond when God brings a trial.” (source)

“Dimension 2. ‘This all-sufficient Christ is with us.’” (source)

“Dimension 3. ‘We are in this all-sufficient Christ.’” (source)

“Dimension 4. ‘This all-sufficient Christ is in us.’” (source)

“The complaining of discontentment includes grumbling. The grumbling is a distrust of God, an anxious concern that the future won’t work out the way we want it to. Discontentment can also be characterized by bitterness. This is a frustration that the past has not gone the way we’d like. Further, discontentment can be characterized by distraction in the present. Unable to focus on what should be prized and prioritized today, the discontented heart rages amid its busyness and worldliness (1 John 2:16–17).” (source)
