TRIBE WEEKLY BIBLE PLAN
MESSAGE SUMMARY

Hi there, we are glad you are here!

In continuing the series Habits of Happiness, this week we talked about the habit of being content and what it takes to achieve it. We learn from Paul that even in the most dire circumstances we can experience contentment.

KEY SCRIPTURE

 

Philippians 4:4-13 (NIV)

 

KEY POINTS

Components of the contentment habit:


1. Gentleness (Philippians 4:5)

Being gentle is a mannerism, shown by the way we handle situations and people with our thoughts, behavior, and words.

2. Prayerfulness (Philippians 4:6)

Being prayerful will alleviate worry, because the focus will be on God taking care of us.

 

3. Gratefulness (Philippians 4:6)

This is a mindset of being thankful on a regular basis, not just when something good happens or is given.

 
4. Mindfulness (Philippians 4:8)
It may not be possible to control what enters our minds, but we ought to be aware of and manage those thoughts in a way that redirects and focuses on what is good
.

Contentment is more than a reaction. It is a habit composed of intentional practices that lead to the peace and power of God.

We pray that you are staying intentionally, spiritually connected with God and others. We pray that you find ways to take the next step in committing to Christ.
