“Do all things without murmurings and disputings:” – Philippians 2:14
Whining and complaining are a part of human nature. We all are guilty of it. However, some people don’t seem to be happy unless they are complaining about something.
Come on y’all, we all know that one person who we dread to see their number pop up on our phone. You know, the one who spends 30 minutes complaining about the president, their pastor, their problems, and everything else in between. By the time they are finished, you have a headache, your ears are bleeding, and you are looking for somewhere to hide for a week to recover! You know exactly what I’m talking about!
The truth is, complaining and whining drags you down. It literally sucks the joy out of your life. You see, in reality, no matter how tough your day is, how hard your problem is, or how stressful your life may be, GOD IS STILL GOOD! On your WORST day, you are still blessed! God has been so good to us ALL!
The next time you find yourself wanting to complain, just think about what Christ endured for YOU on the cross! Think about the pain, heartache, betrayal, slander, and sheer torture He suffered because He loved you!
I truly believe, if we spend our time focusing on all of our blessings, the whining and complaining will quickly subside.
