Excerpt
Foreword: ?Man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward;? therefore we all need to learn the same lesson as Paul. ?I have learned,? he said ?in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content,? Philippians // 4. 11. Believers, especially, wish to attain to a holy equanimity in their tribulations and under the stresses caused by our increasingly secular society. In this volume we have a full exposition, by the Puritan, Thomas Watson, of the above verse of Scripture, originally preached during his ministry as rector of St Stephen?s, Wallbrook, London. ?Although Thomas Watson issued several most valuable books,? said C. H. Spurgeon, ?comparatively little is known of him ? even the dates of his birth and death are unknown. His writings are his best memorial; perhaps he needed no other, and therefore providence forbade the superfluity.?
