There is much in this world to leave us wearied. Yet the Apostle Paul could say, "I have learned, in whatsoever state I am therewith to be content." Commenting on Philippians 4:11, Thomas Watson provides us great encouragement as he points us to the only hope of gaining true contentment. He not only explains the nature of the contentment, but also gives motives to seek it and instructions for obtaining it. Watson's works are all marked by profound spirituality, terse style, impressive remarks, and practical illustrations. This book, first printed in 1653, is no exception.
Thomas Watson (ca. 1620–1686) graduated from Cambridge University and became one of the leading Puritan minsters of London.
