Text of the Day








I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

I know both how to be abased, and I know how to aboundó Phil. 4:11,12.


If we find our experiences in life very checkered, we may conclude that the Lord sees that we need both the heights and depths of prosperity and adversity to properly instruct us and qualify us for the position He designs for us in the future. Let us, then, as the Apostle did, learn how to abound, not allowing the abundance of earthly good things to swerve us from our consecration vows; and let us learn also how to be in want (need) and yet not to want anything beyond what the Lordís wisdom and providence see best to giveóto be content.
