Content

Philippians 4 (KJV)
11 Not that I speak in respect (favor) of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.




12 I know both how to be abased (humbled), and I know how to abound (thrive): every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.



1 Timothy 6 (KJV)

6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment (clothes) let us be therewith content.
9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare (entrapment), and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition (loss of the soul).



Proverbs 30 (KJV)
8 Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:
9 Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the Lord? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.





Luke 3 (KJV)
11 He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.
12 Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do?
13 And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you.
14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.




Hebrews 13 (KJV)
5 Let your conversation be without covetousness (craving,wishing, wanting for something) ; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
