Paul instructed us to one of his letters in Philippians to be contented with whatever circumstances we are in. He himself had suffered prison for how many years. And, God let him learn a lesson and realize about being contented. It is being self-sufficient through Christ, satisfied to the point where you are not disturbed or uneasy.
Contentment can also help you prioritize important things in life. It will also help you do be a good giver and responsible steward. Learn to be contented with everything that you have. It is really okay to ask something for the Lord. But first, He will let you practice contentment in everything.
