Happiness Lies in the Heart, Rather Than in the Purse

Happiness Lies in the Heart, Rather Than in the Purse - Wants and Needs - Gratitude Blog

Contentment with your lot, and confidence in God–will make life peaceful and happy! A dinner of herbs with contentment, will yield a flavor of satisfaction unknown to those who eat the fattened ox.

It is better to be happy than to be rich–happiness lies in the heart, rather than in the purse!

It is not what a man has, but what a man is–which will decide his bliss or woe in both this life and the next.

“I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need–and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want!” Philippians 4:11-12

by C. H. Spurgeon, October 18th, 1868
