Jeremiah Burroughs Recognizes the Christians Peculiar Hatred of Sin as the Critical Difference Between Godly and Worldly Contentment

August 6, 2015

 

"I will only give you this note of difference between a man and a woman that is contented in a natural way, and another, that is contented in a Spiritual way. Those that are contented in a natural way, they overcome themselves, when outward afflictions doth befall them, they are contented, yea, and they are contented as well when they commit sin against God, either when they have outward crosses, or when God is dishonored, it is all one; either when themselves are crossed, or when God is crossed: but now a gracious heart that is contented with its own afflictions, mightily rises when God is dishonored."
