What is Contentment?

Stephen Altrogge gives a great definition of contentment in his new book, The Greener Grass Conspiracy: Finding Contentment on Your Side of the Fence:

Contentment is a disposition of the heart that freely and joyfully submits to God's will, whatever that will may be.

Altrogge fleshes this out by saying that a contented man "doesn't murmur and complain about his season or circumstances of life and doesn't grumble about the things he doesn't have. A contented man isn't jealous when he sees others prospering, because he knows that God is always good to him."
