So What Does It Mean to be Content with God’s Provision?

So what does it mean to be content with God’s provision?  It means that when you and I are safely hidden with Christ in God through faith in his gospel, we are opened up to the others around us – first fellow saints, and then our other neighbors.  Instead of being threats, they are fellow guests of God at his table.  No longer competitors for commodities in a world of scare resources, they are cosharers with us in the circulation of gifts that flows outward from its source without running out.  After all, that source is the triune God: from the father, in the Son, by the Spirit.
