Christian Contentment in All Things – Jeremiah Burroughs

by | March 11, 2018

It is the Lord who gives us all things to enjoy; we may have the thing and yet not enjoy it unless God comes in with his blessing. Now whatever you have, you enjoy it; many men have possessions and do not enjoy them. It is the blessing of God which gives us all things to enjoy, and it is God who through his blessing has fashioned your heart and made it suitable to your circumstances.

– Jeremiah Burroughs – 
from The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment, 1648
