Today, practice being content. What gifts are in your life right now? Notice when you buy into the message that you need better or more of something. Recognize when you are being sold a consumerist vision of life. Notice and contrast it with Jesus’ vision of life, and give thanks for all that you see that is good.
Lord, you came that we might have abundant life and that abundance consists of peace that passes understanding, a light burden, the promise of your never-failing presence and the gift of the Body of Christ. We praise you for the countless ways you daily chase us down with grace and mercy. Amen.
