We often try to fill our need for contentment with new things. For example, Black Friday is often a shining example of this. Many constantly seek the latest deal to find the perfect gift for themselves or their loved ones. Yet, while the things purchased can provide temporary contentment, that contentment always fades.
Mary gives us a great example of how we should and can find contentment in God’s love and power. In spite of so many adverse conditions – an unsanitary birthing place, long travels while pregnant, etc., the Bible tells us that “Mary treasured all these things.” Watch or listen to Pastor Erin explain how we can also find contentment in God’s word.
