Blah, blah, blah. This is what I hear when people complain. I think that its a trend or fad right now.
Tasha was telling me about a sermon she listened to this week. The pastor talked about complaining. “If you want to hate your marriage, COMPLAIN about it. If you want to hate your job, COMPLAIN about it. If you want to hate your house, COMPLAIN about it. If you to hate your car, COMPLAIN about it.”
Do you see the potential here? Complain about everything and you will hate everything, and if you hate everything you will be miserable, and if you are miserable them you’ll vex those around you… Complaining has great negative potential!
What if instead of complaining you choose, yes choose, to find the positive in all circumstances? This has great positive potential! This has the potential to enrich your marriage, make your job more enjoyable, make you grateful for your house, and thankful for your car. But it does stop there.
If you are a complainer, zip it. Then try finding the good instead of the bad. If you look for the bad then you will find it. If you look for the good you will also find it.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. “
