A 5-Week Spiritual Growth Unit on Contentment

(Part of our Crossroads 7th-12th Grade Curriculum)

Suggested Calendar: September 1-29

Who doesn’t like a good code-breaker, problem solving, combination-lock puzzle? Sometimes when we read about Biblical principles such as “joy,” “peace,” and “contentment” - the concepts seem like mysteries. Ideas that are far out of reach for the “regular” person. But what if “the secret” to contentment St. Paul spoke about while sitting in a prison cell in Rome wasn’t a secret after all? What if the mystery to maintaining joy in any and every situation did not require a code-breaker cipher?

In fact, the Bible teaches us happiness is fleeting, but contentment is a simple choice - a choice to love God and others no matter our circumstances. This month, we will unveil the “secret” of contentment by exploring its common thieves, such as: GREED, INSECURITY, COMPARING, CONTROL FREAKS, and FOMO. This month, we unlock the mystery behind this simple Biblical principle.

"I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want."  Philippians 4:12b.
