Moments of Complaining


Happy Friday friends! Have you ever pondered how often you complain? We grumble about many things: the traffic, our government, our family members, the weather, our church, and the list goes on and on. I recently heard it explained, that complaining is not a harmless activity, but rather a faulty view that the world revolves around us, instead of God. Therefore, we are saying we could do a better job than God. That is a dangerous view to have, as it shuts down the flow of God’s blessings in our lives. Our negativity has consequences, both in our lives, and the lives of those we desire to influence for Christ. Instead of bemoaning our situation, we need to align our hearts with God, seeking to understand His heart for the situation that is troubling us. In this verse, Paul equates an absence of negativity and arguments, as being blameless and innocent, and shining a light in a dark world. Pray you all assess your attitude…and seek to align your hearts with God’s…so your light will shine bright to this world…today and always friends!

Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.
Philippians 2: 14-15


One thought on “Moments of Complaining

  1. Beautiful picture, and great reminder. I think we tend to forget that God is Sovereign and that means He is in charge. Our complaining is really a denial of this attribute. … We are not satisfied with that which He has decreed. Praise Him that He is patient with us!
