Content Vs. Complacent

Content Vs. Complacent

content-vs-complacent

Are you content or complacent? People often confuse these two words with being both of them having similar meanings.

Being content is all about gratitude while being complacent is all about laziness. You can have gratitude while still being content in Christ, and you can be complacent but miserable deep inside.

The Bible tells us in 1 Timothy 6:6 to be content, but it also tells us not to be lazy in Provers chapter 6. How does one balance both? By working with pleasing God in mind versus pleasing self, your boss, or getting a paycheck. Our motivation should be to please God in mind.
