Today’s reading: Philippians 2:14-15

Why we should stop complaining

We read in Philippians 2:14-15:

14 Do all things without complaining and disputing, 15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world…

Do you love to complain? You see, one of the greatest enemies of gratitude is always complaining and grumbling. When we start complaining, it’s difficult to be thankful.

Complaining itself is already bad, but it is worse when we complain against God. This reminds me of how the ancient Israelites continually complained against the Most High. They limited God. They thought that God’s purpose was to simply punish and destroy them in the wilderness.

You see, complaining can blind us to God’s goodness. It makes us forget about His ultimate plan for us. Yes, it’s easy to complain when things are not working out the way we wanted them to be. However, complaining will not make things better. It makes things worse!

With this in mind, we must do our best in doing what God wants us to do. We shouldn’t complain about it or argue with one another. 

Why? Because by doing so, we become blameless and harmless. We become children of God. We become lights in the world.

All these can happen and it starts with simply doing our best — not complaining and disputing.
