13 Bible Verses about Contentment - ESV

English Standard Version (ESV)
For we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.
Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”.
I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need.
But godliness with contentment is great gain.
Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight.
Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.
For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
Better is a little with righteousness
than great revenues with injustice.
And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.”
Do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing.
Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head and fell on the ground and worshiped. And he said, “Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”
