Contentment and Eternal Perspective

Take Me There“We are going away to another country; you are, as it were, only lodging here, for a night.  If you were to live a hundred years, in comparison to eternity it is not as much as a night, it is as though you were travelling, and had come to an inn.  And what madness it is for a man to be discontented because he has not got what he sees there, seeing he may be going away again within less than quarter of an hour?”  –Jeremiah Burroughs “The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment” (Banner of Truth Puritan Paperbacks) p. 95
