Are You a Complainer?

Do you like, or did you like, to hear your children complain, especially if they did it repeatedly? Why then do we think the Lord likes it, or the government, or our employer, or our spouse, or anyone else? Yet, complain, we do!
Jesus spoke a parable in which a landowner paid what he and his workers had previously agreed on, “And when they had received it, they complained against the landowner…” (Matthew 20:11).
Endless complaining sometimes gets what we want, but it puts a distance between us and the one to whom we have shown an ugly spirit.
Be content.
