A Song for Contentment

SAS1

December 2

As I’ve thought more about contentment lately, especially with Christmas approaching, a song came to mind. It’s called Simple Living (A Rich Young Man) by Keith and Kristyn Getty. The song narrates two instances where Jesus addresses wealthy men and the worthlessness of riches.

My favorite verse is the third one, which poetically captures the heart of godly contentment:

 

Oh teach me Lord to walk this road,

the road of simple living.

 

To be content with what I own

and generous in giving.

 

And when I cling to what I have,

please wrest it quickly from my grasp.

 

I’d rather lose all the things of earth

to gain the things of heaven.

 

Yes, I’d rather lose all the things of earth

to gain the things of heaven.

 

 

You can listen to Simple Living (A Rich Young Man) here and read the lyrics to every verse here.

 

Your friend,

Bethany J.
