Contentment


Herman Selderhuis:

According to Calvin there is no better rule of life than ‘to be content with the lot which God has given, not trying to fashion one’s own happiness but only considering what He [God] calls us to, neither longing for or aspiring to prestige but remaining content with one’s situation.’ [Calvin on Psalm 131.1]
