Christianity

"Being contented like with so many other things in life must be addressed in context. We would not advocate being contented with what is morally wrong or far from the best.  We can however see being  contented as not the acceptance of wrong but as a moral barrier against longing for more when ‘more’ may not be good for us. Bing contented can also be a moral barrier against excess and addiction." -- Archbishop John Holder

11 Not that I am referring to being in need, for I have learned to be content with whatever I have. 12 I know what it is to have little, and I know what it is to have plenty. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being well-fed and of going hungry, of having plenty and of being in need. (Philippians 4:11–12 NRSVUE Bible)

Buddhism
