Bible Story: Philippians 4:11b-13. In this letter, Paul is writing to the church at Philippi to help them understand more about what it means to follow Jesus. His example of contentment in the face of difficulty is a lesson we can all learn from.

Bottom Line: God can help you be ok no matter what. We can’t promise you that when you follow Jesus that everything in their life will work out just the way they want it to. However, we can promise them that even if life isn’t okay, God can help them be okay with their circumstances.

Key Question: What do you do when things don’t go your way? You know that not everything will happen just the way you want, right? How should you respond when this happens?
