What is Biblical 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.”


c. 1600 – London, November 13, 1646)

I was blessed to take a look at your blog after you left the question about can we read too much on mine from my linking to Ma's post.

I read 7 or 8 of your posts in their entirety and then I scanned into the past ones down to your 1000th post!:D Wow you are a prolific astute writer and obviously reader who puts me to shame. I may have to change my blog name to "mater read a bit".

I'll be "reading" a bit more now that I've seen your material and how you write from soundness and faith in our Saviour Jesus so eloquently. :D

The language reminds me of Jonathan Edwards. Beautiful.
