If we have food and clothing, with these we will be content

Scripture reference

1 Timothy 6:6–8 (ASV 1901)

6But godliness with contentment is great gain: 7for we brought nothing into the world, for neither can we carry anything out; 8but having food and covering we shall be therewith content.

Stories

Henry Moorhouse was wholly devoted to the work of evangelism. While he greatly appreciated American innovations and could see how selling such things back in England would be profitable, he was, like Martin Luther, devoted to God's work alone, and could trust Him for his “daily bread.” He was content with the sufficient “food and raiment” God constantly provided.
