From Our Exchanges

[American Lutheran Survey]

"Having food and raiment let us be therewith content." The adjuration of the apostle needs to be repeated again and again. If we would be content, satisfied, and happy in this life, we must be satisfied with daily bread. The Lord has taught us to pray, "Give us this day our daily bread." He points us to the lilies of the field and the birds of the air, that we may learn from them contentment. Discontent is the destroyer of happiness, and results from our lack of satisfaction with the daily provision for life. Greed, avarice, covetousness, and a long train of sinful desires, grow like weeds in the heart which has not learned the lesson of contentment with food and raiment. God would have His children care free and happy.
