Contentment

See also Content

kon-tent’, kon-tent’-ment (ya`al; arkeo): To be free from care because of satisfaction with what is already one’s own. The Hebrew means simply "to be pleased." The Greek brings out the full force of the word in 1Ti 6:8; Heb 13:5. Contentment (1Ti 6:6) is more inward than satisfaction; the former is a habit or permanent state of mind, the latter has to do with some particular occurrence or object.
