Dictionary Mode: easton:Contentment
Contentment @ a state of mind in which one's desires are confined to his lot whatever it may be ( 1Timothy:6:6; 2Corinthians:9:8). It is opposed to envy James:3:16), avarice Hebrews:13:5), ambition Proverbs:13:10), anxiety Matthew:6:25 Matthew:6:34), and repining ( 1Corinthians:10:10). It arises from the inward disposition, and is the offspring of humility, and of an intelligent consideration of the rectitude and benignity of divine providence Psalms:96:1-2; 145), the greatness of the divine promises ( 2Peter:1:4), and our own unworthiness Genesis:32:10); as well as from the view the gospel opens up to us of rest and peace hereafter Romans:5:2).
