Barriers to Contentment

On this edition of MoneyWise, Steve Moore and Rob West, discuss the idea of contentment. Are you content with what God has given you or is something getting in the way of that contentment? Rob and Steve discuss some common barriers that stand in the way of contentment and how to combat them.
