Anyone know the origin of the term 'Creature Comforts'?

I was wondering if anyone knows the origin of the phrase ‘Creature Comforts’. My mind keeps going back to Creature from the Black Lagoon, but that’s just word association. Anyone know that skinny?

OED attests the usage from 1614, deriving it from the Bible, I Timothy 4:4

Thank you, that’s interesting.
