#thirstythursday / a scripture for when everyone is on the complain-train

the daily Starr thirsty thursday

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!

  1. If complaining wasn’t so easy the Israelites wouldn’t have spent 40 years in the desert! You have to replace a complaint with something I have found. A praise of who God is or something he has done seems to help me get off the complain train. (when the ride is free it’s hard to resist)
