Overheard in New Jersey, three or four years ago...

A young twentysomething was home visiting her parents. She said of her roommate, "She claims to be a Christian, but I'm not sure because she's not very content."

I have never heard contentment given such a place of honor, except by the Apostle Paul. This young woman was saying that contentment is such a sign of God's grace, of understanding and believing the gospel, that if you don't have it...you probably have never really met God.

If I ever have a daughter who grows up to be a twentysomething, I hope she says things like that. Hope my son does too.
