From Jeremiah Burroughs' Contentment, Prosperity, and God's Glory, (p. 20):
"The strength of a Christian is to enjoy God's gifts, to make use of whatever God allows, to take the sweetness from it, and yet to avoid temptation--in other words, to take away that which is good and to cast away that which is not good."This book is the original appendix to Burroughs' Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment. I highly recommend both books to the Christian reader.
"I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where in and in all things i am instructed both to be fulfilled and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need," (Phil. 4:12).
