COMPLAINT?


A father was heard lecturing his son: “Our forefathers did without sugar until the 13th century, without coal fires until the 14th century, without the printing press until the 15th century, without an English translation of the Bible until the 16th century, without coffee until the 17th century, without public schools until the 19th century, and without computers until the 20th century.  Now what was that you were complaining about?”

Someone has suggested keeping in mind when we feel like complaining that 50% of our listeners are not interested and the other 50% are glad we finally are getting what we deserve. Paul the Apostle taught the believers in his day: “Neither murmur you as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.  Do all things without murmurings and disputings: that you may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation.”

We are good at excusing ourselves for complaining by calling it by some other name. The Bible uses synonyms for complaining, such as “clamoring and murmuring.”  As believers we are warned of the consequences that result from complaining.  However, there are legitimate times and methods for complaining.  Are your complaining habits biblical or sinful?

If there ever was a person who seemed to have legitimate reasons to complain it was Joseph, the dreamer boy, in the Old Testament.  As you are aware, Joseph learned to look at his life from God’s perspective and instead of complaining, he found many reasons to praise God for His workings in his life.  We have two great character courses available on the life of Joseph. If you enjoy biographies and the learning of helpful Christian principles from the lives of Bible heroes, you will definitely enjoy one or both of these courses: 40700 Joseph, taught by Stanley Toussaint and 41200 The Life Of Joseph,  taught by Dr. Theodore Epp.
