William S. Plumer - Contentment William S. Plumer (1802-1880): American Presbyterian minister and graduate of Old Princeton; it has been said that among 19th century Reformed writers, "none was more doctrinally sound, experientially searching, and practically realistic"; known as pre-eminently a preacher of the Gospel, while a contemporary described his public prayers as "the tender pleadings of a soul in communion with God." Philippians 4:11
-14 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength. 14 Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles.
