Complaining appears to be something that many do very well. I mean they complain about the weather, their neighbors, their family, their pay checks, the price of gasoline, food, and their sports teams, etc. I’m not saying that these things might not need attention, but there are things that are worse. People forget that we have men and women returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with missing limbs, blinded, and suffering from post war-mental stress, which will be with them for the rest of their lives. Aren’t these things much worse than a co-worker who won’t pull his fair share of the work at the office?
Doesn’t that make our complaining somewhat insufficient with that being the case? There is an old saying, which goes like this, “I cried because I had no shoes, but I stopped crying when I saw the man who had no feet.” Please take the time to read what the Bible teaches about complaining (1 Corinthians 10:10; Philippians 2:14; 1 Peter 4:9; Jude 16; 2 Kings 5:10-13 Numbers 11:1-6; 2 Cor. 9:7).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
