Be all you can be is a catch phrase used to motivate people to excel and go to the next level. But it may also mean what you have and what you are today isn’t enough. Certainly, we must be achievers who maximize our God-given resources, abilities and talents to glorify our creator. But it can also mask discontentment.
An Attitude of contentment is not an achievement killer. Contentment is a reality check that enables us to fully appreciate what we have. Contentment is a mindset that believes that God will supply all our needs. Contentment doesn’t passively accept the status quo but it moves forward with faith and trust that God will provide exactly what we need. The bible says: Godliness with contentment is great gain. 1 Timothy 6:6
