Grumble, Grumble, Grumble – Part 1
As leaders and disciples of God, we are commanded to do all things without complaining and disputing. In this series, we are going to look at different instances in Scripture where complaining caused major problems for the people of God. It is vital that we practice thankfulness as believers, being thankful and resisting complaining keeps our relationship with the Lord fervent and our faith strong and active.
Complaining people have taken their eyes off of Christ, thankful people keep their eyes on the Word so they are excited about God delivering them in every trial of life.
Philippians 2:14 Do all things (daily, whole) without complaining and disputing, NKJV
Part 1 – Complaining – Means murmuring, grudging, grumbling, secret debate, or secret displeasure not openly avowed, and to mutter. A secret debate among people. Means displeasure or complaining in private rather than in public.
Our attitude is part of our witness before the world. We are not only to speak our witness and regard each action as a witness but also to show forth a proper attitude in everything we say and do. A New Testament Commentary Philippians By Bob Yandian
