Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therein to be content. I know how to be abased, and I know also how to abound: in everything and in all things have I learned the secret both to be filled and to be hungry, both to abound and to be in want. I can do all things in him that strengtheneth me.
1 Timothy 6:6-8
But godliness with contentment is great gain: for we brought nothing into the world, for neither can we carry anything out; but having food and covering we shall be therewith content.
A tranquil heart is the life of the flesh; But envy is the rottenness of the bones.
And soldiers also asked him, saying, And we, what must we do? And he said unto them, Extort from no man by violence, neither accuse any one wrongfully; and be content with your wages.
And he said unto them, Take heed, and keep yourselves from all covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
Be ye free from the love of money; content with such things as ye have: for himself hath said, I will in no wise fail thee, neither will I in any wise forsake thee.
Do all things without murmurings and questionings
But seek ye first his kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
And my God shall supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee.
Remove far from me falsehood and lies; Give me neither poverty nor riches; Feed me with the food that is needful for me
Better is a dinner of herbs, where love is, Than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.
Trust in Jehovah, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on his faithfulness.
Delight thyself also in Jehovah; And he will give thee the desires of thy heart.
Commit thy way unto Jehovah; Trust also in him, and he will bring it to pass.
And we know that to them that love God all things work together for good, even to them that are called according to his purpose.
This is the day which Jehovah hath made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Jehovah is my shepherd; I shall not want.
Pride goeth before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.
