"...You had need look to your spirits, you may see that this murmuring, which is the vice contrary to this contentment, is not so small a matter as you think; you think you are not so ungodly as others, because you do not swear and drink as others do, but you may be ungodly in murmuring, gooit is true, there is no sin but some seeds and remainders of it are in those that are godly, but when they are under the power of this sin of murmuring, it doth convince them to be ungodly, as well as if they were under the power of drunkenness, or whoredom, or any other sin; God will look upon you as ungodly for this sin as well as for any sin whatsoever."
