A net friend shared this knowledge with me and I think it is important for me to share it with all of the reader of my blog as this is something that we always faced in our daily life, COMPLAINS.....
Every time you want to grumble, Think of others who have less; Ask the Lord to keep you humble, Grateful for each happiness.
Whenever we are tempted to grumble, let’s remember Numbers 11:1,
“When the people complained, it displeased the Lord.”
We too sometimes tend to focus on the negatives rather than the positives of life. We murmur against the Lord when we should be praising Him for His countless blessings. We let ourselves be distracted by the disappointments and deprivations that God allows for our spiritual good.
The people of Israel had the same kind of complaining attitude. God had miraculously taken care of them during their wilderness wanderings, yet they constantly complained. For example, they griped about the manna that God had so graciously provided. Remembering the fish, cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions, and garlic of Egypt, they whined, “There is nothing at all except this manna before our eyes!” (Numbers 11:6). What ingratitude!
There’s a story about a farmer who was known for his negative attitude. One day a neighbor stopped by and commented on the farmer’s wonderful crop. “You must be extremely happy with this year’s harvest,” he said. The farmer grudgingly replied, “Well, yes, it looks like a pretty good one, but a bumper crop is awfully hard on the soil.”
When the people complained, it displeased the Lord. —Numbers 11:1
