Practicing Contentment - Bible Study


In our culture, we have more, but seem to enjoy life less. No matter how hard we work or how much money we accumulate, on the whole we’re not happier. Instead, our society seems to be obsessed with wanting something more, something new, something next. And as Christian women, we’re not exempt from this trend. Many of us struggle with discontentment on a daily basis. Why is that? Somewhere along the line we have entertained the notion that we are entitled to more—and thoughts like this just make us more discontent.

So can contentment be learned? What prevents us from being thankful for what we have? And who is ultimately to blame when we are discontent? This Today's Christian Woman single-session Bible study will help you deepen your faith as you dig into Scripture, reflect on the truth of God’s Word, and take action steps to live out your faith by fostering deep and enduring contentment in your life—especially when it’s hard.
