True happiness comes from contentment.
As Christians, we know better: true happiness will never consist of things. Contentment will never be found through satisfying the desires of this life. But a culture that begs us to buy, buy, buy in an effort to make ourselves better does not leave us better off in any real sense or ultimately satisfied. This study will discuss what s wrong with this picture.
