Complaining

Complaining seems to be part of the human condition. When it is hot, we complain that it's not cooler. When we don't receive what we want, we complain about it. Those who are in the conversion process should strive to replace complaining with gratitude. Instead of complaining about it being hot, be grateful that you have a shower or a fan or air conditioning And if you don't have those, be grateful for the fact that night is coming when things will be cooler. If you don't receive what you want, be grateful that God has taken away from you what he knows would not be as healthy for you as what he has given instead. As we move along the path of conversion, we should cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Let's start today.
