Definition of the word Content:: It means to be satisfied, ease of mind, content with what you have.
Mark chapter 15 - 15 : And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.
Luke chapter 3 -14 : And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying ,and what shall we do? and he said unto them, do violence to no man , neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.
Phillipians chapter 4 - 11 : Not that I speak in respect of want : for I have learned , in whatsoever state I am , therewith to b e content.
1 Timothy chapter 6 - 8 : And having food and raiment let us be content.
Hebrews chapter 13 - 5 : Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said I will never leave the, nor forsake thee.
As young children , we were taught to be thankful and content with what ever we had, which wasn't very much . We were poor financially speaking, but we were rich in everything else. I want to bring to your attention, brothers and sisters in Christ that has nearly everything your hearts desires and are still not content.
We complain about all the things that we don 't have, instead of being thanking for those things that God has already blessed us with. We all must make it a daily habit of thanking God for the little things in life, so he can bless us with bigger and better things. God knows if we aren't thanking for the smaller things in life , we sure want be thanking him for the larger things in this life.
Don't let wanting for more things, destroy the blessings that we already have. The bible tell us to be content with what we have right now.
