Are You Complaining?
Do everything without grumbling or arguing, – Philippians 2:14
I found myself complaining today about my job–that they put me through yet another training module, that they made me authorize yet another background check–when I realized that some people don’t have jobs at all.
How many times do you complain about the things in your life that you take for granted? Like the roof over your head? The food on the table? The job that pays for all that?
We are all guilty of grumbling or arguing our way through the everyday chores or the extra tasks at work, but there are people in this world who look us and think we are the richest people in the world. There are people who would trade lives with us any day of the week.
Instead of focusing on the bad, we need to find the good in every situation, and thank God for it. When we do, we will turn our grumbling into praise to our Most High God, who loves us and knows what is best for us. 🙂
