Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment

Christianity without Contentment is Worth Nothing

Now I say that contentment is a quiet frame of spirit and by that I mean that you should find men and women in a good mood not only at this or that time, but as the constant tenor and temper of their hearts. A Christian who, in the constant tenor and temper of his heart, can carry himself quietly with constancy has learned this lesson of contentment. Otherwise his Christianity is worth nothing, for no one, however furious in his discontent, will not be quiet when he is in a good mood. ~ The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment by Jeremiah Burroughs
