Jeremiah Burroughs – What Is Contentment?

28 Jun

Christian contentment is that sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God’s wise and fatherly disposal in every condition.

    I am greatly challanged by the quotes you post, but I would like to know more about the authors. Would it be possible to include a thumbnail sketch of who these guys were? For example, I have never heard of Jerimiah Burroughs; who was he? where and when did he minister? what is he remembered for?

      Gary, thanks for your comment! I have just posted the first batch of Old Guy profiles that I hope you will find helpful! You can find them on the top menu on the home page.

    This is an answer to prayer. I just asked the Lord in prayer a day or so ago, exactly what does it mean to be content. Does it mean that you do not desire earthly goods, and if so, how is a body to accomplish that in this world of advertising. Thank you for posting this it certainly answers the question.
