Contentment pt. 2

“So I may say to a Christian: Are you the King’s son, the son, the daughter, of the King of Heaven, and yet so disquieted and troubled and vexed at every little thing that happens? As if a King’s son were to cry out that he is undone for losing a toy; what an unworthy thing this would be! So do you: you cry out as if you were undone and yet are a King’s son, you who stand in such relation to God, as to a father, you dishonour your father in this; as if either he had not wisdom, or power, or mercy enough to provide for you.” (Jeremiah Burroughs)
