Beautiful words from Paul in quarantine…

I my copying-meditating this morning, I’m struck by these words from Paul to the Ephesians …

Paul is calling disciples to become like Jesus… love, tenderhearted, kind, forgiving. “Walk in love” he says.

I’m reminded of the closing words of Psalm 19:

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.” (v. 14‬ ‭ESV‬‬)

Discontented?

Because he understood the greatness of God, Paul could say from house arrest…

“Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” Philippians‬ ‭4:11-13‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Dwell in him, he will give you contentment.
