Proverbs 30:15 reads, "The leech has two daughters,'Give,' and 'Give.' There are three things that will not be satisfied, four that will not say, 'Enough'.... The 'leech's daughters' are not 'Salvation Army bell ringers' challenging us to 'give' but rather to GIVE TO THEM! During this season in our culture is seems there are 'leeches' all around! While followers of Christ are to be characterized by service and giving, it it NOT like Jesus to never be satisfied or content. Contentment in the Scriptures spoken of in very positive terms.
Especially during the holidays there are gifts we 'need' and things we want and possessions we 'must' possess. Yet, 1 Timothy 6:6-7 says, "...godliness with contentment is great gain...we brought nothing into the world...we can take nothing out of it."
Jesus said in Matthew 6:32-33, "For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." This Christmas, let us not be like the pagans inhabiting the culture in which we live. Rather, let us be like our Savior and not require from but rather pour into the lives of those around us....and let us be content with all the Lord has poured so richly into our lives!
