"...So it is with us, we are at God's table every day, and it is upon free cost whatever we have. It is accounted very unmannerly for a man at his friends table to find fault with things, though at home he may be bold: Now when we are at the table of God (for so all Gods administrations to us are at his table) and are at free-cost, now for us to be finding fault and be discontented, this is a great aggravation of our sin."
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.107.
