Content in prosperity

Justin Taylor makes a very good point about Philippians 4:11-13 and the challenges of being content when things are going well:
We need Christ’s strength not just when things are bad, but also—perhaps especially—when they seem so good.

We need Christ’s strength not only when the grass looks greener on the other side, but when the grass on our side looks greener than all of the neighbors’.

The better things are, the more potential for Christ to recede from our hearts and minds as the one from whom, to whom, and through him the good gifts exist.
