17 Though the fig tree does not bud
and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
and no cattle in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the LORD,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
these people's lives were at stake and they were still rejoicing in the Lord. I'm learning to be content with what I have. (sup Keith). Actually I am content with what I have. Overly content and I still don't want all the junk I have.
I'm not content with the world though. I'm not content that so many companies use sweatshops. I'm not content with the chocolate industry. I'm not content at all with Nike. I'm not content that I own Nike shorts. To trash, or not to trash? They already got my ten dollars, I can't do anything about it now. I give up shopping.
I am content drinking kool-aid out of a mason jar and wearing cut off jean shorts though.
