Discontentment

Every discontented heart is a proud heart.

Instead of being angry with Providence for not making us greater than we are; the meanest (lowest) person of us all, if he rightly knew himself and God, would fall low at His footstool and adore Him for condescending to bestow any thought upon us whatever.

As I once heard a valuable person remark, “God is often better to us than our fears; and always better to us than we deserve.” We should be perfectly at ease, under every possible combination of circumstances, if we could but give credit to infinite Wisdom for doing all things well.
