Surrendered Contentment: Experiencing the satisfaction of who you are, what you have, and what you do.
?In chapter 23, Stevens and Ung conclude their discussion of anger (the desire to control) and gentleness (the strength of meekness) by considering surrendered contentment – the outcome of a spirit-led life in the workplace.
How contented are you with the current state of your working life?
- Is you job providing you with satisfaction and fulfilment?
- Does the salary match the expectations of the organisation?
- How about your relationship with your colleagues or boss?
When our answers to these question are not positive, we often lapse into a complaining attitude – the outworking of a lack of contentment. As Ung points out:
‘It’s hard to be satisfied with what we have. However, as Christians, we are called to live a surrendered life. ?Such a surrendered life need not be a weakness but can be a position of strength. We are imitating the Lord Jesus, who demonstrated inner strength by walking resolutely toward the cross because he had surrendered his will to his loving Father.’
