Philippians 2:14 - Do everything without complaining or arguing.
Complaining is an easy trap to fall into. It starts out with giving out just a few negative words. But once you’ve got someone listening to you, it’s hard to ignore the pull of wanting to complain. Letting people know what’s going on is one thing, but it becomes complaining when it’s all you talk about. Do you often get caught in the complaining trap? Have you learned how to balance between allowing others to see your struggles and talking too much about them? I’d love to hear from you.
