Dealing with Discontent

It’s been said that “the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence” or to put it in New York terms: the apartments are always better in a different borough, the jobs always lead to more joy in another field, and the trains always run better on the other line. Discontent--being unhappy and unsettled with where you are--is a common, if not constant, feeling for many of us. But what do we do with our longing for “greener grass” and better apartments? Is it a bad thing? Does the Christian faith offer a better approach to life than one of incessant envy or constant comparison? As a follower of Jesus is it possible to be at peace with where I am while not constantly feeling as though I’m settling for something less than God’s best? Join us in the series as we talk about dealing with our discontent and how the message of Jesus offers an answer to and a way of dealing with our incredible appetite for more.
