Breakout and Break Away from the Material
The word of God speaks and demonstrates that the mind controlled by the flesh has a different perspective than one that is controlled by the Spirit. The mind controlled by the flesh measures abundance by material gain and possession, while the mind controlled by the Spirit assesses the account in heaven. The mind controlled by the natural desires is distracted and often consumed by material possessions and operates according to the principle of buying and selling, unable to grasp the kingdom principle of sowing and reaping. When we stop seeking contentment in material things and commit to that which is for God, of Christ, and by the Spirit we will receive the fruit of His work that includes contentment.
