How to Be Dissatisfied

How to Be Dissatisfied

Think back to Craig's message. What sticks out?

Key Scriptures

But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.

1 Timothy 6:6-8 NIV

How to Be Dissatisfied

1. Focus on being ungrateful.

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV

2. Compare what you have to people who have more.

We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.
2 Corinthians 10:12 NIV

3. Pursue temporary possessions over eternal treasures.

Then he said to them, "Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions."
Luke 12:15 NIV

4. Develop and attitude of entitlement.

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
