Jeremiah Burroughs – The Danger of Wanting More

8 Dec

So when we are content with our conditions and what God disposes of us to be in, there is a blessing in it, then it is sweet to us, but if we must needs have more, and keep it longer than God would have us to have it, then there will be worms in it and it will be no good at all.
