Does complaining about this and whining about that test our relationship with GOD? When things don't go our way do we make excuses, blame others, and complain? Do we even recognize our habitual complaining? It's too hot, not cold enough, sun is shinning now but it will probably rain, my new shoes are causing blisters. Complaining is a sin; it shows an attitude that we are ungrateful and yes, even bitter about life. When we complain we take our eyes off GOD. Ephesians 4:29, "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, speak only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs...." If we prayed before we spoke; if we gave thanks before we spoke; if we smiled and complimented others on their strengths; then others would see GOD IN US. May our FATHER'S JOY, PEACE AND LIGHT RADIATE OUR LIVES SO THAT WE ARE A BREATH OF FRESH LIFE TO EVERYONE WE MEET.
