Contentment is a interesting word, it seems at times that we take it as one of 2 things. It is a very hard thing to do or something we just give up on ever being.
Have you ever met a truly content person? I think of my great-grandmother when I think of a content person. She was blind, and had many other physical issue she dealt with on a daily basis. She lost her only child as a infant, but she was blessed to be able to adopt my grandmother.
All the time I knew her she turned everything into a smile and a blessing, even though it could have been looked at as a hardship.
1Ti 6:6* But godliness with contentment is great gain.
And we could add……. “It passes on a great legacy to the children and grandchildren”.
