"Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for."Philippians 4:11-13, "I am not saying this because I am in need, for 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 can do everything through him who gives me strength."
Why can't we just be content with what God has given us? Thankful for what we already have?
