Wanna Shine Like a Star?

galaxyDo everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life -Philippians 2:14

Have you ever noticed how complaining just sucks the joy out of life? Even doing something good for someone else has no joy in it if it’s done from a complaining heart.

Paul said, “Do everything without complaining…” Wow! He couldn’t mean everything? What about homework, or chores? What about the extra workload on your job, or the traffic on your commute? Did he mean everything?

Here’s a challenge. I dare you to try this for one day. No complaining!
Tell someone close to you, you are going to go 24 hours without complaining about anything. Ask them to keep track of your complaining when they are around, and to ask you how you did when they weren’t there.

If you find that hard to do, you might want to check out this teaching from Keith Green. We used to hear it about once week at Last Days Ministries many years ago. It’s a great article that will help you shine. Gumbling and Complaining
