Holy discontent leads us home, “Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” Matthew 5:3
Have you ever wondered if you have been too content? Being virtuous and content without want regardless of the situation? Be unaffected by a good or bad circumstance? As Christians, have we become too content that we just flow and accept things the way they are? Have we distorted what the book of Proverbs mentioned that those who delight in God will be content? Could it be that our interpretation of this verse have stopped us to desire to know and have more of Christ? That it has stopped us to give more of ourselves towards Christ and others? That it has stopped us to care.
As author Bill Hybels wrote from his book, “Holy Discontent” means a moment where our passion and purpose intersects. A sense of an uneasy spirit about the brokenness of this world which aligns with the heart of God that motivates us to respond positively. It is that moment when we start to ask ourselves, “why do we do what we do?”
If Christianity is about bringing Jesus known to earth; to do right; to seek justice; if being a disciple of Christ is to defend the oppressed, to take up the cause of the fatherless; to plead the case of the widow; should we be content with the way things are? Is our contentment rooted in a desire to see heaven’s will to be done on earth?
