Wisdom For Each Day – November 23, 2014

Separated from friends, unjustly accused, brutally treated – if any man had a right to complain, it was this man, languishing almost forgotten in a harsh Roman prison.  But instead of complaints, his lips rang with words of praise and thanksgiving.

This was the apostle Paul, a man who had learned to give thanks even in the midst of great adversity.  Look carefully at what he wrote during his prison experience: “Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:19-20).

I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in in want.

Philippians 4:12
