We will never be content if we are always striving to create the conditions which we would be happy to face. For Jesus says, ‘God makes the sun rise on the evil and on the good and sends the rain on the just and the unjust!’
Misfortune is no respecter of persons. We do not live in an ideal world. We can never create our own Utopia. The conditions for our own happiness can never be self-generated.
If we are going to learn the secret of contentment, we must first limit our expectations. ‘In life,’ we must learn to say, ‘we will have to face all conditions and not just those we would like to face!’
