How Christians May Learn in Every State to Be Content by Thomas Jacomb
Puritan Thomas Jacomb explores what makes a Christian content. Using Philippians 4:11 as his text his sermon covers three situations, a person without much at all, a person who has plenty but is discontent and a person who had much at one time but lost it for some reason. He also discusses contentment in relationships, not having children, when relations die and relations that have an unsuitable disposition. This Puritan sermon is part of “The Morning Exercise at Cripplegate” series.
