[What I wrote to a friend who struggles with discontentment.]
It’s difficult to be content especially when you often interact with people whom you perceive to be better off than you.
Most people solve the problem by (1): associating only with people of their own level of wealth / status.
(2): Some manage to rethink their value system / perspective to treat life as a challenge, etc., so that everyone is just kind of playing a different game, and people aren’t necessarily better or worse off. Just focus on your own unique game.
The Bible seems to advocate both:
(1): Christians share their resources (almost like some form of voluntary communism; communalism is a term used by some theologian).
(2): Also stuff about accepting your portion, and that those who are given more resources to manage have more expected of them.
Also, as long as you can afford to have nutritious and appetising food to eat every day, and comfortable clothes to wear, you are already blessed that God has taken care of all your physical needs.
Not sure if your lack of contentment can be attributed to status envy. I have a solution for you: people who exploit their higher status, and abuse their resources to induce envy in those of lower status, are pathetic sinners, and deserve no envy. They’re just amassing boatloads of God’s wrath.
Since technically everything is from, and belongs to God, people with status and wealth who spend their resources prioritising their own enjoyment and pleasure, are demonstrating that their own lives are more precious than that of others. You already know what God thinks of such people.
