Do everything without grumbling or arguing. Philippians 2:14

Are you kidding? You think I can do everything without a single complaint or grumble? How is that possible? Sure things upset us and we react to those things at times. The point is,do not get caught up griping about everything that does not go the way you thought it should. If you do, you have fallen into the trap of being like everyone else. Why get so upset about a wrong order at a restaurant? Perhaps your service was bad. I am sure you can come up with a list of things you maybe have grumbled about in your past. 

What to do to stop this behavior? Try thinking of good things or happy things and make believe Jesus is with you. He is you know. There may be some so accustomed to griping because they grew up around it and are not aware they picked it up. Try to make yourself aware of how you treat others and catch any slip up when it comes to being a complainer.

Before you know it you will be able to turn the other cheek on many things that previously upset you and will be showing more of God's love to those around you.

PRAYER: Forgive me Lord when I have become a griper or just looked for bad things. Help me look for good things in my fellow man. In Jesus' name. Amen.
