  3. Is there anything you want to change about the way you look?
  4. Are you inwardly jealous when someone you know gets something you cannot afford?

  • 7-9 points – You have much to learn about contentment
  • 10-11 points – You are fairly content but God has more for you
  • 12 point – What you have, you have by the grace of God; do not be proud
