What Makes Me Complain?




Over the last forty (40) years I have written a number of quotes, comments, pithy sayings, and poems in the fly-leafs of my bibles. Each Tuesday I am going to share those various entries from my bibles with you. I hope they will be as much of blessing to you as they have been to me. Sometimes I will be able to give credit where credit is due and sometimes I won’t be able to credit the source. I apologize for this to each one who contributed these gems over the last forty (40) years.

TODAY'S TREASURE:


We make the choice to turn from all that we have received and focus on what we still want to have. This is when complaining comes in. I minimize the blessings of life and magnify every negative circumstance encountered when I complain.

Great post Gregg, I can complain like the rest when I know I am RIGHT. Sometimes we have to stand our ground but only when we are totally sure of our facts.

Yvonne - there is a major difference between standing our ground for a right and complaining.
