Contentment–More Powerful than You Think

Posted By Denise Miller Holmes on Tuesday

In the quest for righteous living, contentment is king.

I was reading a book by Robert Green, called The Art of Seduction, where he counsels on how to pick a victim for seduction (political and social seduction, not just sexual).

In this book, Green comments that when choosing someone to seduce, it is best to choose someone who is discontented because a contented person is impervious to seduction.

What? That needs to go in the Whoda Thunk? department. I’ve never been aware that feeling satisfied is that powerful a defense against the Enemy’s tactics to entice us to the dark side.

Let me explain.

Contentment is an emotion. I have always believed that if I am discontented, the only consequence is that I feel unsatisfied. Period. I suffer emotionally and therefore less joy of the Lord.

But in reality, contentment’s tendrils reach far. If the Enemy looks for it as a signal to either move away or pursue the seduction, then contentment is key to staying on a righteous path.

“. . . for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstance I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity . . . .” (Philippians 4:11 NASB)

Remembering I Peter 5:8–Satan “prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour”–I am more motivated to pursue contentment. Paul was not saying he was satisfied and therefore it would be nice if we were too. No, he was saying that contentment is king.

How do you become content? Good question, and that is another post. But if you’re as interested as I am in becoming strong against seduction, praying and asking God to help you feel satisfied with the things He has given you is a good start.
