But when we recognize that this world is that way because of our sin (Genesis 3:19), and that there is a God over all against whom we have sinned, and yet that this very same God is the giver of all good gifts, then a new path begins to open. It is the path of contentment.
“Everyone also to whom God has given wealth and possessions and power to enjoy them, and to accept his lot and rejoice in his toil - this is the gift of God.” (Eccl 5:19). Notice that the true gift of God is not just whatever he has provided for you. The true gift of God is also the power to enjoy it; to be content with today’s provisions, whether great or small. Dear friend, if you want to experience that gift and leave the path of misery, you need to know the gift of Jesus Christ and the true contentment of a life redeemed from sin.
