Complaining Again

We recognize many behaviors as sin, but how often do we see complaining as a sin? The Book of Numbers shows Israel complaining constantly and every time they angered the Lord. Why then do we complain as much as they did? Listen to one of their complaints, “And the people spoke against God and against Moses: ‘Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and our soul loathes this worthless bread'” (Numbers 21:5).
Watch your tongue for the next several days and see how often you complain. You might be shocked.
