5 Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have;
for He Himself has said, I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,
6 so that we confidently say, The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid.
What will man do to me?
I've been very familiar with this verse for many years. But I may have missed the full meaning. I've always focused on the first verse about not loving money and being content with what I have.
But why are we content? Because we have enough. Not really. We are content because He (Jesus) will always be with us, and we are assured He will not forsake us.
Simply put, seek to please our Heavenly Father ...........find contentment and confidence.
Seek to please people, ............... Well to quote the old rock song,
"I can't get no, .....Satisfaction"
I am more than satisfied with Jesus.
Until the whole world hears,
