Accept things as they are

Using Ecclesiastes 7.10 as the lead-off Bible verse, Ed M. shares a powerful devotional today. His first paragraph tells you where he’s headed:

To dwell on the past is to neglect the present. Pining for the “good ole days” reflects a misunderstanding of the ways of God. Servants of the Most High will accept things as they are. They will learn “to be content whatever the circumstances,” Philippians 4:11.

Focus question: How can we be mindful of the present? What do you do to cultivate contentment now?
