Contentment. In some ways, it’s like the holy grail. For centuries, men have heard about its powers and desired to discover if it can really do all that its legend portends. But like medieval  knights on a never-ending quest, most of us spend our entire lives in a vain search for the illusive prize of contentment. And the people of Judah were no different. In fact, in Isaiah 5:8-17, God pronounces a series of woes against the nation because their lives were marked by greed and an insatiable desire for more. They were anything but content, even though God had richly blessed them in a variety of ways. And their self-centered, self-pleasing determination to have more revealed a strong lack of love for God and others. And God condemns them, warning that they would experience His curses, because they refused to be satisfied with Him and all that He had graciously given them. Discontentment is a disease that is communicable. It can spread from one person to the next, infecting the entire family of God. Which is why God, like a surgeon, was going to extract it from their midst.
