This week Pastor Travis invites us to use “Lectio Divina” (Spiritual Reading) to help develop gratitude & contentment.
Paul expresses gratitude to the church in Philippi for their provision, and that leads him to teach about contentment. When Christians trust in God to provide for all their needs, that trust leads to contentment, even in times of need. “And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)
