Complaining kills joy. It makes you unhappy. It makes everyone around you unhappy too. How many of you like to be around complainers?
The problem is – that once we start to complain – it is hard to stop. Complaining can become a habit and to tell you the truth – it is a bad habit. We can find something to complain about all the time. If it is raining – of course we can complain about that. But we could also rejoice that the ground is being refreshed and watered. If it is sunny we could complain about that saying, “ Oh no – I will probably get sun – burned.” We are somewhat conditioned by our society to complain. Look at the headlines in your newspapers and on the television. I would say that most of what you see is bad news. We are bombarded continuously with what ‘s wrong with everything. By our own nature and by our conditioning we tend to develop the habit of complaining.
The Bible says “ Do everything without complaining and arguing."
Proverbs 28 : 13 says: “ People who conceal their sins will not prosper, but if they confess and turn from them, they will receive mercy”.
