I find that my first reaction tends to be to complain or think up ways I can solve or change my difficult circumstances. But, my desire is for my initial response to be taking my concerns to the Lord and then moving to action. I pray that I would run to the Lord and find contentment in Him; that in taking my cares before a loving God, I would see my own selfishness, and He would help me look more like Jesus to those with whom I interact daily. I pray I will run to the Lord before complaining.
Discontent is contagious, and I do not want to be the reason someone else is tempted to be discontent. Instead, I want to inspire others to be grateful for both the joys and hardships of the life God has given them, and I want that for myself as well.
Do everything without complaining and arguing so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people. Philippians 2:14
