Contentment, Prosperity, and God's Glory (Puritan Treasures for Today)
“Writing with deep pastoral conviction and keen theological precision, Jeremiah Burroughs proves a safe and sure guide into the important subject of contentment—what it means to delight in God’s fatherly disposal in every condition. Wonderfully edited by Phillip Simpson, Contentment, Prosperity, and God’s Glory is a certain blessing for all who seek to find their satisfaction in God’s unsearchable riches.”See All

Why is it difficult to be content when you have so much stuff? On the surface, it seems unnecessary to instruct someone to be content in times of prosperity. However, times of prosperity and abundance provide some of the strongest temptations to pull our hearts away from God. Jeremiah Burroughs was keenly aware that the riches of this world compete for our affections and challenge our contentment in Christ. Originally prepared as an appendix to The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment, this book provides an important conclusion to Burroughs’s sermon series on Philippians 4:11–12: “I have learned in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.”
