The Point Radio: Someone Is Watching Your House

Someone is watching your house, and they’re giving good commentary on the 10th commandment....

How do you nurture a spirit of contentment in your own life? Here are five tips:

1) Count your blessings! Make a list of all the things you have to be thankful for; then go back and thank God for them.

2) Ask, seek, knock: Read Matthew 7:7-11 and James 4:1-10. Instead of coveting tell God about your desires. Ask Him to show you the motives of your heart and to deliver you from evil. Then ask Him for those things which you need or desire which you believe are from Him. Submit yourself to Him.

3) The least of these: Take a field trip. Do something today to care for the least, the last, and the lost. Visit someone in prison; serve food at a local soup kitchen; or take a meal to a shut-in. Ask God to open your eyes to the many blessings in your own life that you take for granted. (Matthew 25:37-40)

4) Pay attention: Slow it down and appreciate the little things. Notice the way the sun falls through your window. Take a good look at the people God has put in your life and remember reasons you are thankful for them. Look at the stars. Remember how the Creator has lavished His love on you and remember that in food, and fire, and fellowship, God’s fingers are taking hold of you.

5) So great a salvation: Read Hebrews 2:3, Matthew 27:32ff, and Romans 8:31ff. Take some time to meditate on what Jesus Christ accomplished on the cross for you. Praise God that you have been given the greatest gift of all.

Thank you for this simple, yet meaningful reminder. I am guilty of driving by homes for sale and taking the information sheet to see the details of the home. Then I am left feeling less-than because our home is much smaller, not completely done and probably not as elegant. But I am always brought back to reality when I see the faces of my husband and children and am reminded of how blessed I am.
