A not so funny lesson from God...

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).
