Providence Is Not Ours To Determine and Decide

Being content with life means accepting the circumstances in which God’s providence has placed me.  That can mean being content with poverty, if God so chooses.  But it can also mean being content with my place as an average middle-class guy in an American suburb with a wife and four children – someone with various callings to my family, church and neighborhood.

– Horton, Michael, Ordinary: Sustainable Faith in a Radical, Restless World; Zondervan; copyright 214; Kindle Edition; page 18
