Philippians 4:10I rejoice greatly in the Lord that at last you have renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you have been concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
12 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. 13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
I took a look at my retirement account not long ago and it was not a pretty sight. Have you taken and look at your accounts? How much has it lost is value in the year of our Lord 2008?
Write down the amount you have left.
Ask yourself: "Am I any worse off today than I was one year ago in actual comfort, food and clothing?
Am I as content as I was when the market was steaming ahead?
Why or why not?
