During the month of November, we ‘press on’ To Be Content. The Cardinal Virtue of Justice, usually represented by a scale, helps us weigh what is due God and other people and act accordingly. Life will present us with different choices. The virtue of justice enables us to choose the fair and kind decision for everyone involved. A decision each of us need to make is to be content with what we have, to express gratitude to God for all we have. During November we celebrate the American holiday of Thanksgiving which is a very appropriate time to be grateful. So, this month, let us have an attitude of gratitude for learning, loving, and being as we press on to be content!
“Let your life be free from love of money but be content with what you have, for he has said, ‘I will never forsake you or abandon you.’” Hebrews 13:5
“Lord, my allotted portion and my cup, you have made my destiny secure.” Psalm 16:5
