Is Your Discontent Holy?

Holy discontent is about having righteous attitudes towards sin, injustice, poverty, oppression, etc. Holy discontent is therefore not focussed on our own needs but the needs of others. 1 Cor 10:24 (NIV) Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others. Holy discontent was seen in David’s dissatisfaction with the Israelites response to Goliath’s taunts (1 Sam 17:4-47). 1 Sam 17:45 (NIV) David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. David’s concern was against defiance of God! Discontent is holy when we are concerned about our government’s ineptitude or lack of care for its citizens. Discontent is holy when we are troubled with the way our parents may be treating the rest of the family and motivates us to find a way to improve things. Such holy discontent moves us to act in a positive manner. Is your discontent holy?
