Wisdom and Truth Minute: Day 23

Life’s Rainstorms

Philippians 4:11

Hi, I’m Howie Campbell, and this is a Wisdom and Truth Minute.

I love fishing. Catching fresh food is great, and I love the beauty and variety God has created. Even if I’m not catching, it’s exhilarating just being out there. I love fishing; but I hate being chewed up by bugs. Gnats in the Adirondacks; no-see-ums in Florida, and mosquitoes everywhere! Well, into everyone’s life some rain must fall.

That’s not scripture, but here’s what the Apostle Paul said in Philippians 4:11: “I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” So, rather than complain about the bugs, I rejoice in being able to fish and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation.
