IT'S ALL IN THE ATTITUDE

 
Philippians 2:14,15


"Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation."NIV


"Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world."KJV


There are so many things on a daily basis that bring us frustration and irritation. How often do we mumble complaints or plainly argue about a situation? Doing so is the human side of us. As Christians, we show a different attitude toward stressful and trying times. If we are able to go through these things with a Godly attitude, no complaining, no arguing, but enduring and maturely talking through things, we will show that the light of Christ shines in us. We will be a testimony of the peaceful and pure life that following Christ produces. Those trapped in the darkness and deceit of this world will be affected in a positive way by our attitudes.


Heavenly Father, we ask for Your forgiveness for those times we have acted like the world and have grumbled and argued over difficult situations. Help us to let the Holy Spirit shine through us at these frustrating times so that our attitudes will show the ungodly that being a child of God is the way to true peace and love. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.

Complaining leads to grumpiness and loss of ability to influence others positively.
Good post, Good prayer, Good advice.
Blessings and love, Geoff.

Love your post. I have recently begun to think 'it is what it is' about situations and that keeps me from complaining.
