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.I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

But godliness with contentment is great gain.But godliness with contentment is great gain.

Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice.Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right.

Do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.
