contentment mathematics

  Which of the following is correct?

  • contentment = poverty + peace
  • contentment = trust + uncertainty
  • contentment = love + suffering
  • contentment = stress + turn-off-your-brain
  • contentment = friday + alcohol
  • contentment = real life + faith
  • contentment = making-it-through + rest
  • contentment = psalm 88 + psalm 23

Not all of the above represent good math.  Do any of them?  Are there other equations?  How is it that Paul can say "I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I
know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I
have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation,
whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength."
(Philippians 4:11-13 NIV)
