(Jeremiah Burroughs, 1600-1646)
“I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances!” Philippians 4:11
Christian contentment is that sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God’s wise and fatherly disposal in every condition.
“Godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that!” 1 Timothy 6:6-8
“Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said: Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you!” Hebrews 13:5
