We can’t be the only ones that struggle in this area.
Kids. Co-workers. Friends. Family. MYSELF.
We all find ourselves caught up in complaining at times. Life is bad. Life is terrible. Blah blah blah blah. Nothing brings a mood down quicker than gloom and doom, right???
Instead of constantly nagging at my kids to stop, we’re going to take a different approach. We’re going to speak the truth of the Bible over their hearts each and every day.
This #thirstythursday verse is perfect for when we’re struggling with the complain-train.
In everything you do, stay away from complaining and arguing, so that no one can speak a word of blame against you. You are to live clean, innocent lives as children of God in a dark world full of people who are crooked and stubborn. Shine out among them like beacon lights, holding out to them the Word of Life. – Philippians 2:14-16
Oh, and it covers arguing too!!! Yes to the yes.
I might just say this verse every morning over our children before they walk out the door. Jesus, take the complain-train wheel!
