“If any who fear God should complain, that although they have a calling, yet it is a hard laborious one, which takes up too much of their time which they would gladly employ in other and better work, I answer, that it is likely the wisdom of Providence foresaw this to be the most suitable and proper employment for you; and if you had more ease and rest, you might have more temptations than you now have.  The strength and time which are now taken up in your daily labours, in which you serve God, might otherwise have been spent on such lusts in which you might have served the devil.” 
John Flavel
(The Mystery of Providence, PG 77-78)
