Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment

Having recently posted some thoughts and resources about dealing with our discontent, I thought I might offer something from the other direction – how to cultivate godly contentment.  As Paul wrote to his protege, Timothy: “Godliness with contentment is great gain.”  (1 Timothy 6.6)
