“I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.”
I recently read this. It seemed to me a pretty rad attitude to have. Definitely not one that I have though, to be really honest. I think the funny part is that it comes from the NIV version of Philippians 4: 10 to 13. Because I still haven’t unsubscribed from the IBS Daily Manna from the Net. In the hope that one day I’ll actually read a Scripture I give a shit about. And that makes scientific/ human rights sense. Yeah, God, that kinda cuts out those ones were you supposedly zap people dead/ saltify them for disobeying.
Anyway, I am getting sidetraaaacked…
Even though at the moment Paul is not on my Top 10 list of people to shnuggle at night, his words still made me think.
Imagine if I could say, I have learned the secret of being content when I have answers regarding religion and when I doubt all of them, when I am in a spotless room and when the dirty dishes emanate a honky odour.
Oh, and the last line of Paul’s quote says “I can do everything through him who gives me strength.”
