really repent & be content

Luke 3

v8a

Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance...

We too, should fear the Lord's awesome judgment, and not just talk about repentance, but make some real changes. Including:

v14

And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse [any] falsely; and be content with your wages.

The part that says, ...be content with your wages makes me think of contentment in general, and how we should be content.

When I've had something I need to do that I don't think I'll enjoy (like my homework), it's easy to walk around dreading it and complaining. But once I really get started and get into what I'm supposed to be doing, it's usually not as bad as I thought. We should be content with what we have to do.
