Commencement Adresses

The Leadership Gift of Biblical Contentment

E. LeBron Fairbanks

The graduation address at the Seminary of the Americas (SENDAS), November 2010, San Juan, Costa Rica, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Seminary. Discussed are the Irony of Contentment; the Barriers to Contentment; and the Secret of Contentment.

The God-centered character of gratitude is anchored in an unshakeable trust that there is a God who is sovereign and whose providential care guides His people. Contentment does not make us grateful; rather, it is gratitude that makes us contented.
