Christian Contentment: What Is It?

Jeremiah Burroughs, puritan of the early 1600’s, wrote in his work The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment, this definition of Christian contentment:

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.

What a task this is for us today! To “freely submit & delight in” God’s work in our lives…”in every condition”. Let us encourage one another in this task.
