COMPLAINTS AND ARGUMENTS
14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing.
Here Paul is talking to the Philippian church, evidently, they were having problems. But we can put this into our daily lives. We all complain. We don’t like the weather, we don’t like to wake up on time, we don’t like the food. But we forget the worse alternative. Cloudy days could be a tornado, we could not wake up at all because the tornado hit us. We could be going to a food kitchen because we don’t have money to buy our food. Complaining and arguing are two very negative things that people do and a lot of the times do it compulsively. Paul says to live without complaining or arguing. Next time you want to complain about something, stop, think of the alternative, and thank God for what you do have. ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and let Him take your complaints and make them thanks.
