The Cure For Complaining
There is a great hashtag out there called #firstworldproblems. This gets attached to something on social media when someone complains about something that people in other parts of the world would give anything to have a chance to experience. Here are a few examples of #firstworldproblems:
"I can't believe I bought a toaster with no bagel setting."
"I am so over Apple products."
"The worst part about my mom having a cupcake business is I hate cake and that's all there ever is to eat."
No matter how good it gets, it seems we can always find something to complain about. Complaining can become almost second nature to us that we often don't even know we are doing it.
This week, God is going to call us to do everything without complaining or arguing. Everything. Even complaint-worthy things. And God is going to tell us how He has given us the power to do this, and what He will accomplish IN us and THROUGH us when this becomes the norm for our life.
