”If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content.” (NASB)
STRONGS HEBREW/GREEK ORIGINS
”If we have food (diatrophe: sustenance) and covering (skepasma: raiment, clothing), with these we shall be content (arkeo: to be enough, suffice, content, to be strong, satisfied).”
If we have food to sustain us and clothing to cover us, with these shall we be content and satisfied.
In a world where the more you have seemingly defines your success, may we turn to The Word. Although I do not believe we are to be poor and without, I’m assured that we are not to seek after the unnecessary luxuries of this world. It is more important to possess eternal things that cannot be purchased than earthly collections that will pass away. Today, I praise the LORD that I have a roof over my head and food in my pantry. I thank Him for giving me more than I would ever need. We are truly a blessed people.
