Do Not Complain, Be Grateful

I think I have mentioned in a previous post that I am working on not complaining. It is an ongoing work in progress. When I notice that I have slipped back in to complain mode, I try to readjust my attitude and find things that I am thankful for.

I thought that I needed to study on Philippians 2:14 just felt like I needed this. I hope something that I share will help you as well.

******************

Philippians 2:14 NIV Do everything without grumbling or arguing

GNT Do everything without complaining or arguing

VOICE Do all things without complaining or bickering with each other 

Cross References:

1 Corinthians 10:10 NIV And do not grumble, as some of them did -- and were killed by the destroying angel

1 Peter 4:9 NIV Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling 

My thoughts:

Whatever task is set before me, I need to pursue with a grateful heart. Whining, grumbling, complaining does not benefit anyone.




Prayer:

Dear Father, thank You for all that You have done for me and my family. Please forgive me for the times that I complain about having something to do. Or for thinking that I won't do something and see how long it takes for someone else to step up. That is not the right attitude I need to have or that I want anyone to witness. Please forgive me and help me in my attempts to do better at not complaining. Thank You for all that You do. I pray that Your will be done. In Jesus' name. Amen.
