Jeremiah Burroughs On the Significance of Being Content Prior to Receiving A Blessing or Mercy that we Might be Yearning For

September 30, 2015


"There is a great deal of folly in discontent and murmuring; for it doth eat out the good and sweetness of a mercy before it comes. If God should give a mercy that we are discontented for the want of, yet the blessing of the mercy is as it were eaten out before we come to have it. Discontent is like a worm that eats the meat out of the nut, and then when the meat is eaten out of it, then you shall have the shell."


Jeremiah Burroughs. "The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment." London: Printed by W. Bentley for L. Sadler and R. Beaumont, 1651.- Reproduction of the original in the Union Theological Seminary (New York, N.Y.) Library. p.94.
