Memory Verse

“I have learned the secret of being content no matter what happens. . . I can do everything by the power of Christ. He gives me strength”

Audio Icon   Philippians 4:12-13



In this episode, Liz and the gang perform plays showing that it isn’t easy to be content all the time. Having inner peace “no matter what happens” means trusting that God is working through your circumstance and will provide for all your needs. Often times you may want things that others have or there may be things happening in your life that are beyond your control. So how do you remain content? First of all, like Paul, you can remember God’s faithfulness. Paul remained content and remembered “I can do everything by the power of Christ” (Philippians 4:12-13). A second key to being content is to remain grateful. When you spend time being grateful for what God has given you, it changes your perspective. You think more and more about all the things God has given you and less about what you don’t have. God challenges you to be content.

Want to dig deeper? Read these verses on thankfulness as a family: Psalm 100; Psalm 7:17; Psalm 136.


Make a thankfulness jar for your family. Whenever you think of something you are thankful for, write it on a piece of paper, and place it in the jar. Take some time every few weeks to check the thankfulness jar. Together, read the pieces of paper. These messages of thankfulness can be great reminders of God's goodness to you and to your family.
