A Different Dr. Watson…
I am finishing up preaching through the letter to the Philippians. I found these words by Thomas Watson on Ch. 4 from his great book “Art of Divine Contentment” –
“Discontent is a spider that sucks the poison of unthankfulness out of the sweetest flower of God’s blessing, and is a devilish chemistry that extracts dross out of the most refined gold. The discontented person thinks every thing he doth for God too much, and everything God doth for him too little.”
I am convinced God is shaking the economies of the world to reveal how our pride and self-sufficiency in wealth have become our god and to expose our spiritual bankruptcy that builds “church” on everything but the truth of his word and the power of his grace and Spirit. Here we find our desperate need for him and find him all sufficient for all that we require.
