12 Bible Verses about Contentment

« 1-timothy 6:7-8 »
For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.
Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
But godliness with contentment is great gain.
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”
I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
Better a little with righteousness
than much gain with injustice.
At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship and said:
“Naked I came from my mother’s womb,
and naked I will depart.
The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away;
may the name of the Lord be praised.”
Do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.
