Yesterday, I taught Sunday School on contentment. My arch nemesis. Anyway, much of what I shared was about the fact that stuff won't bring satisfaction and contentment. Contentment is only available in Jesus. Psalm 63, Phil 4
After class we went on to the Worship service. In the middle of the sermon, someone's cell phone went off. I realized that I hadn't checked to make sure mine was on vibrate, so I reached down only to realize that my cell phone was not in my pocket. Yeah, you know, my shiny, oh so nice and "satisfying" iPhone was gone. What would I do without it? What if I never got it back? I suddenly remembered I took it out of my pocket and placed it on a shelf just prior to teaching. Argh...
Right after class, I ran up to the class to get it, and as you can guess, it was not there... OH my goodness. I ran down to lost and found, but it was not there either. Well, finally, I found it in our Sunday school resource box that had been returned to it proper place (hard to explain).
Ok, God, I get it. I need to learn to do without my iPhone. Naked I came into this world, and naked I shall return (Job).
