“And here, by the way, we may see what a great deal of evil there is in discontent, for you would have God’s providence altered in such and such a detail:  now if it were only in that detail, and that had relation to nothing else it would not be so much, but by your desire to have your will in such a detail, you may cross God in a thousand things that he has to bring about, because it is possible that a thousand things may depend upon that one thing that you would fain have otherwise than it is.”  Jeremiah Burroughs, “The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment” (Banner of Truth, Puritan Paperbacks) p. 114
