‘How much do you need to be happy?’

A survey of New Year’s resolutions discovered that of people with above average incomes: thirty three percent want to retire before age sixty five: twenty two percent want to get out of credit card debt: fifteen percent want to make do with current finances: ten percent want to look for higher-paying job: and nine percent aim to die broke.
Well, if money figures in your resolutions, it’s important to remember the wisdom of the Bible that says ‘Godliness with contentment is great gain.’ You are only as rich as you are content. Someone once asked John D. Rockefeller, when he was the world’s richest man, ‘How much do you need to be happy?’ Rockefeller replied, ‘Just a little bit more.’ Contentment is not in how much you’ve got, but in how much you appreciate what you’ve got.
