I was listening to the radio  when I heard the songs lucky man by montegomery gentry it immediately brought to mind Paul’s passage on being content.

“10 I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. 11 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. 12 I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”

If we measure our success and lot in life against  others, then we will always have the temptation to be either ungrateful or prideful. However if we have the proper perspective then we can truly  appreciate the little or the plenty that we have been blessed with.  Once we master this secret of being content we can say not that we are a lucky man, rather that we are a blessed man.
