No Whining Allowed

Philippians 2:14-18

When others see you, do they see you for the person you really are - someone who complains about life's joys and trials, or someone that rejoices in them? The truth of the matter is that when complaining appears as a characteristic of your life, it may prove you don't really believe in God. A life of joy shows true faith. Do you have that joy - that ongoing, peaceful fellowship with God?

When you complain, you put a cover over the truth by your actions. Instead, Scripture says to hold fast to the gospel. Others are watching your life, and an eternal witness is at hand.
