A Contented Heart is Active and Lively in Service to God

But where contentment of heart springs from grace, the heart is very quick and lively in the service of God. Yea, the more any gracious heart can bring itself to be in a contented disposition, the more fit it is for any service of God. And just as a contented heart is very active and busy in the work of God, so he is very active and busy in sanctifying God’s name in the affliction that befalls him. ~ The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment by Jeremiah Burroughs
