Godliness Contentment: Mind Sweetly Settled and Composed”
Travels of True Godliness by Benjamin Keach is an allegory. Keach was in the earlier Baptist movement in England and wrote this fine allegory of True Godliness seeking an abode (which he finally finds with the person of Thoughtful, who carefully considered his calling, etc.). Finally, "Godliness, however, informed him of a person named Contentment, whom he saw he had not yet found; and remarked, that if he could but acquire him for an associate, his mind would remain sweetly settled and composed, that he would enjoy calmness of soul, and be delivered from anxious thoughts, and undergo crosses and harsh accidents with equanimity; wholly submitting unto, and being fully satisfied with, the divine disposal."
Amen, godliness with contentment is great gain... true riches.
