Thoughts on Contentment

To be content is to know God has supplied, is supplying, and will continue to supply, so that one could:
- be generous (manifested through giving and sharing) rather than be covetous (expressed through accumulating and hoarding); and
- be diligent (and exercise good stewardship) rather than complacent (and display laziness).

A person covets because of a poverty mindset - thinking he does not have enough. A person becomes complacent when he lacks godly wisdom - not understanding the greater purpose of prosperity. A person is content when he believes he is blessed with prosperity for a purpose - i.e. he possesses an abundance mindset and godly wisdom.

Covetousness and complacency are the two extremes. Contentment is the middle path. A contented person is neither covetous nor complacent. He enjoys and employs what he receives from God. He is blessed. And he is a blessing.

Hi Lip Kee,
I totally agree with what you said, and I think this also best describes the crux of NCC's teaching on prosperity.
