  • and came on out.Let's go to the next point.
  • 00:01:29.675 --> 00:01:31.777
  • Let's go to the next point.I'm called to live
  • 00:01:31.777 --> 00:01:33.412
  • I'm called to livewith contentment.
  • 00:01:33.412 --> 00:01:35.881
  • with contentment.How huge is this in our world
  • 00:01:35.881 --> 00:01:39.017
  • How huge is this in our worldof constant comparisons today?
  • 00:01:39.017 --> 00:01:41.787
  • of constant comparisons today?Live with contentment.
  • 00:01:41.787 --> 00:01:42.955
  • Live with contentment.I mean I'm going to preach
  • 00:01:42.955 --> 00:01:44.356
  • I mean I'm going to preachabout this at least
  • 00:01:44.356 --> 00:01:45.057
  • about this at leastevery other week
  • 00:01:45.057 --> 00:01:46.358
  • every other weekfor the next ten years,
  • 00:01:46.358 --> 00:01:47.926
  • for the next ten years,in some way or another.
  • 00:01:47.926 --> 00:01:50.162
  • in some way or another.This thing of contentment.
  • 00:01:50.162 --> 00:01:51.964
  • This thing of contentment.This thing about enjoying
  • 00:01:51.964 --> 00:01:53.031
  • This thing about enjoyingwhere you are on the way
  • 00:01:53.031 --> 00:01:54.533
  • where you are on the wayto where God is taking you.
  • 00:01:54.533 --> 00:01:55.501
  • to where God is taking you.I'm going to preach on it
  • 00:01:55.501 --> 00:01:56.401
  • I'm going to preach on itbecause I need it.
  • 00:01:56.401 --> 00:01:57.803
  • because I need it.I'm going to preach about it
  • 00:01:57.803 --> 00:01:58.804
  • I'm going to preach about itbecause our world is
  • 00:01:58.804 --> 00:01:59.705
  • because our world isantithetical to it.
  • 00:01:59.705 --> 00:02:01.073
  • antithetical to it.I'm going to preach about it
  • 00:02:01.073 --> 00:02:02.307
  • I'm going to preach about itbecause comparison
  • 00:02:02.307 --> 00:02:03.842
  • because comparisonkills contentment.
  • 00:02:03.842 --> 00:02:05.010
  • kills contentment.And with no contentment
  • 00:02:05.010 --> 00:02:05.944
  • And with no contentmentthere can be no joy.
  • 00:02:05.944 --> 00:02:06.945
  • there can be no joy.I don't care how much stuff
  • 00:02:06.945 --> 00:02:07.713
  • I don't care how much stuffyou have.
  • 00:02:07.713 --> 00:02:10.382
  • you have.And so I'm called to live
  • 00:02:10.382 --> 00:02:11.250
  • And so I'm called to livewith contentment.
  • 00:02:11.250 --> 00:02:13.051
  • with contentment.Like that great Bible verse
  • 00:02:13.051 --> 00:02:14.987
  • Like that great Bible versePhilippians 4:13 where it says,
  • 00:02:14.987 --> 00:02:16.288
  • Philippians 4:13 where it says,"I can do all things through
  • 00:02:16.288 --> 00:02:18.157
  • "I can do all things throughChrist who strengthens me."
  • 00:02:18.157 --> 00:02:19.258
  • Christ who strengthens me."And we use that verse
  • 00:02:19.258 --> 00:02:20.359
  • And we use that verseto set goals for ourselves,
  • 00:02:20.359 --> 00:02:20.993
  • to set goals for ourselves,you know?
  • 00:02:20.993 --> 00:02:22.127
  • you know?I can do this and I can do that.
  • 00:02:22.127 --> 00:02:23.695
  • I can do this and I can do that.But the verse right before it
  • 00:02:23.695 --> 00:02:24.997
  • But the verse right before itHe says, "I've learned
  • 00:02:24.997 --> 00:02:26.165
  • He says, "I've learnedthe secret of being content
  • 00:02:26.165 --> 00:02:28.567
  • the secret of being contentin any situation.
  • 00:02:28.567 --> 00:02:30.068
  • in any situation.No matter if I have little,
  • 00:02:30.068 --> 00:02:30.903
  • No matter if I have little,if I have a lot,
  • 00:02:30.903 --> 00:02:31.737
  • if I have a lot,if I'm abounding,
  • 00:02:31.737 --> 00:02:32.905
  • if I'm abounding,if I'm in need.
  • 00:02:32.905 --> 00:02:34.840
  • if I'm in need.I can do all things."
  • 00:02:34.840 --> 00:02:35.541
  • I can do all things."What?
  • 00:02:35.541 --> 00:02:36.208
  • What?I can do all things
  • 00:02:36.208 --> 00:02:37.809
  • I can do all thingsbecause I'm content.
  • 00:02:37.809 --> 00:02:38.911
  • because I'm content.So in any situation
  • 00:02:38.911 --> 00:02:41.680
  • So in any situationI'm called to contentment.
  • 00:02:41.680 --> 00:02:44.016
  • I'm called to contentment.And I guess, I'm not trying
  • 00:02:44.016 --> 00:02:46.118
  • And I guess, I'm not tryingto divide men and women in this
  • 00:02:46.118 --> 00:02:47.553
  • to divide men and women in thisbecause we respond
  • 00:02:47.553 --> 00:02:48.854
  • because we respondin different ways but,
  • 00:02:48.854 --> 00:02:50.189
  • in different ways but,like when I don't feel like
  • 00:02:50.189 --> 00:02:52.157
  • like when I don't feel likeyour content I feel that
  • 00:02:52.157 --> 00:02:53.425
  • your content I feel thatthat is you saying
  • 00:02:53.425 --> 00:02:54.560
  • that is you sayingthat I'm a bad provider.
  • 00:02:54.560 --> 00:02:55.494
  • that I'm a bad provider.And I probably shouldn't feel
  • 00:02:55.494 --> 00:02:57.396
  • And I probably shouldn't feelthat way, shouldn't make it
  • 00:02:57.396 --> 00:02:58.630
  • that way, shouldn't make itabout me, but I do.
  • 00:02:58.630 --> 00:03:00.532
  • about me, but I do.And then I become miserable.
  • 00:03:00.532 --> 00:03:01.066
  • And then I become miserable.- Yeah.
  • 00:03:01.066 --> 00:03:02.267
  • - Yeah.It's taken me a long time
  • 00:03:02.267 --> 00:03:03.435
  • It's taken me a long timeto figure this out
  • 00:03:03.435 --> 00:03:04.770
  • to figure this outbecause I understand
  • 00:03:04.770 --> 00:03:06.638
  • because I understandthat at his core,
  • 00:03:06.638 --> 00:03:07.606
  • that at his core,at a man's core,
  • 00:03:07.606 --> 00:03:09.741
  • at a man's core,is this need to provide.
  • 00:03:09.741 --> 00:03:11.310
  • is this need to provide.To provide for his wife,
  • 00:03:11.310 --> 00:03:12.911
  • To provide for his wife,to provide for his family.
  • 00:03:12.911 --> 00:03:14.413
  • to provide for his family.But I always took that to mean
  • 00:03:14.413 --> 00:03:16.181
  • But I always took that to meanhe just wants to make sure
  • 00:03:16.181 --> 00:03:17.216
  • he just wants to make surethat our bills are paid
  • 00:03:17.216 --> 00:03:17.950
  • that our bills are paidevery month.
  • 00:03:17.950 --> 00:03:19.651
  • every month.But it really goes way
  • 00:03:19.651 --> 00:03:21.720
  • But it really goes waybeyond him providing financially
  • 00:03:21.720 --> 00:03:23.021
  • beyond him providing financiallyfor us every month.
  • 00:03:23.021 --> 00:03:24.523
  • for us every month.I mean you have this need to,
  • 00:03:24.523 --> 00:03:26.258
  • I mean you have this need to,yeah I mean obviously, provide
  • 00:03:26.258 --> 00:03:27.125
  • yeah I mean obviously, providefor our needs every month.
  • 00:03:27.125 --> 00:03:28.560
  • for our needs every month.But then you want to provide
  • 00:03:28.560 --> 00:03:30.195
  • But then you want to providestability for us.
  • 00:03:30.195 --> 00:03:31.096
  • stability for us.You want to provide
  • 00:03:31.096 --> 00:03:32.197
  • You want to providefor our future.
  • 00:03:32.197 --> 00:03:33.699
  • for our future.But even more than that
  • 00:03:33.699 --> 00:03:36.101
  • But even more than thata man feels like he wants
  • 00:03:36.101 --> 00:03:37.736
  • a man feels like he wantsto provide happiness
  • 00:03:37.736 --> 00:03:38.737
  • to provide happinessfor his wife,
  • 00:03:38.737 --> 00:03:40.005
  • for his wife,and for his family.
  • 00:03:40.005 --> 00:03:41.640
  • and for his family.And I think for women
  • 00:03:41.640 --> 00:03:44.009
  • And I think for womenwe really struggle with this.
  • 00:03:44.009 --> 00:03:45.844
  • we really struggle with this.Because it's so easy to let
  • 00:03:45.844 --> 00:03:48.981
  • Because it's so easy to letone thing upset us and let it
  • 00:03:48.981 --> 00:03:50.549
  • one thing upset us and let itjust set the trajectory
  • 00:03:50.549 --> 00:03:51.483
  • just set the trajectoryof our day
  • 00:03:51.483 --> 00:03:54.086
  • of our dayin a terrible direction.
  • 00:03:54.086 --> 00:03:55.220
  • in a terrible direction.And I think sometimes
  • 00:03:55.220 --> 00:03:56.421
  • And I think sometimesI really fight this
  • 00:03:56.421 --> 00:03:57.990
  • I really fight thisbecause it feels unfair.
  • 00:03:57.990 --> 00:03:59.891
  • because it feels unfair.Because whether I like it or not
  • 00:03:59.891 --> 00:04:02.861
  • Because whether I like it or notas a woman I am the thermostat
  • 00:04:02.861 --> 00:04:03.929
  • as a woman I am the thermostatof my home.
  • 00:04:03.929 --> 00:04:04.630
  • of my home.- True.
  • 00:04:04.630 --> 00:04:06.465
  • - True.- I set the tone.
  • 00:04:06.465 --> 00:04:07.132
  • - I set the tone.I set the mood.
  • 00:04:07.132 --> 00:04:09.268
  • I set the mood.- It's true.
  • 00:04:09.268 --> 00:04:10.702
  • - It's true.- And you can either --
  • 00:04:10.702 --> 00:04:11.570
  • - And you can either --I mean it is was it is.
  • 00:04:11.570 --> 00:04:12.504
  • I mean it is was it is.Is that fair?
  • 00:04:12.504 --> 00:04:13.005
  • Is that fair?No.
  • 00:04:13.005 --> 00:04:14.306
  • No.Why can't I be in a bad mood?
  • 00:04:14.306 --> 00:04:15.974
  • Why can't I be in a bad mood?Why can't I just have a bad day
  • 00:04:15.974 --> 00:04:18.443
  • Why can't I just have a bad dayand everybody else just not be
  • 00:04:18.443 --> 00:04:19.678
  • and everybody else just not bein a bad mood too?
  • 00:04:19.678 --> 00:04:20.946
  • in a bad mood too?It's just not the way
  • 00:04:20.946 --> 00:04:21.980
  • It's just not the waythat it works.
  • 00:04:21.980 --> 00:04:24.816
  • that it works.And so the way that I feel
  • 00:04:24.816 --> 00:04:26.652
  • And so the way that I feelis setting the tone
  • 00:04:26.652 --> 00:04:28.053
  • is setting the tonefor our whole family.
  • 00:04:28.053 --> 00:04:29.388
  • for our whole family.And when he feels like
  • 00:04:29.388 --> 00:04:31.790
  • And when he feels likeI'm unhappy then he feels
  • 00:04:31.790 --> 00:04:33.892
  • I'm unhappy then he feelslike he's failing.
  • 00:04:33.892 --> 00:04:36.528

  • So Jesus did his part.He was obedient.
  • 00:11:06.918 --> 00:11:09.020

  • 00:11:09.020 --> 00:11:10.321
  • And then God exalted himto the highest place
  • 00:11:10.321 --> 00:11:11.456
  • to the highest placeand gave him to the name
  • 00:11:11.456 --> 00:11:13.291
