Daily Devotional: September 3rd
Do everything without complaining or arguing. Then you will be innocent and without any wrong. Phillipians 2:14-15
Because we are imperfect human beings, we often lose sight of our blessings. Ironically, most of us have more blessings than we can count, but we still find reasons to complain about minor frustrations of everyday life. To do so, of course, is not only wrong; it is a pinnacle of shortsightedness and a serious roadblock on the path to spiritual abundance. Are you tempted to complain about the inevitable minor frustrations of everyday living? Don't do it! Today and everyday, make it a practice to count your blessings, not your hardships. It's the truly decent way to live. Life is too short to nurse one's misery. Hurry across the lowlands so that you may spend more time on the mountaintops.
So don't bother rebuking mockers; they will only hate you. But the wise, when rebuked, will love you all the more. Proverbs 9:8
This is such a great message. Throughout the day everyone hears people complain and we even do it ourselves over petty stuff. It's not worth it. If you have FAITH you should know it will work out. God's got us and is always working. Don't get to a point where you let the small stuff get you down. Someone out there has it worst. Just pray. Let Go and let God. Don't sweat the small stuff. Have a great day. Thank God and thank you.
