The Impact of Complaint

Philippians 2:14-15 gives the command to do everything without complaining and fighting, so that way we can remain blameless and not cause harm because we are God’s light in the world.globe-86243_1280

WOW! That is certainly a challenge because when you look at the opposite it basically says that because we are God’s light in the world we need to do things without fighting and complaining because otherwise we will be to blame for causing harm to the lost.

We are supposed to be the light. But if we are always complaining or fighting, why would anyone be attracted to the light?

My personal thoughts are that God will hold us accountable for the times that people were turned away from Him because of our attitude.

God, forgive me for my mouth. I pray that you would help me to not gripe or complain but to grow in You. Lord, send other to those who have been impacted by my negative attitude to show them the light. Amen.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try the believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you
