Philippians 4:11

"...For I have learned, in whatsoever state I am in, therewith to be content."
 
The lottery tomorrow is up to 350 million dollars, and my son and I have big plans for that money! We will be very content.
 
What if the Apostle Paul, writing from a prison, knew a little bit more about what is true contentment than I could learn with 350 million dollars (before taxes)?
 
In verses 12 & 13, Paul tells us, "I know indeed how to live in humble circumstances; I know how to live with abundance. In every circumstance and in all things I have learned the secret of being well fed and being hungry, of living in abundance and of being in need. I have the strength for everything through Him who strengthens me."
 
What if intimacy with Jesus is worth more than 350 million dollars? What if Paul and St. Francis of Assisi and Mother Teresa and countless missionaries around the world have an abundant joy movie stars and premiere athletes and business moguls and lottery winners are trying so desperately to buy?
 
What if the secret to contentment is a love relationship with the Holy Trinity?
