BE THANKFUL, DON”T COMPLAIN

The best way to appreciate your job is to imagine yourself without it. Don’t count all of your blessings in dollars and cents, but count your spiritual blessings in all of the wonderful JEWELS you have learned from God’s Word. “The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.” ( Psalm 119:72 ). You could have been born to a family in India who are starving and worship cows and rats, and they pray to rats, and make temples for them, and they feed them even before they feed their own children. My God such darkness! “I had no shoes and complained until I met a man who had no feet.” God hates murmuring and complaining and unthankfulness almost more than any other sin, except rejecting Jesus Christ, his Son. God destroyed millions in the Sinai Desert because of murmuring. “Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.”( I Corinthians 10:10,11).Think of it, after seeing all these miracles happen in front of their eyes. The Jews still murmured and complained. God takes away blessings when we don’t appreciate them. One optimistic old woman said, “Yes, its pretty hard, I have to get along with only two teeth– one upper and one lower, but thank the Lord they both meet.” “Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: For this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” (I Thessalonians 5:16-18). Don’t let the devil trick you, and fall into his trap of murmuring, and complaining. If we are always being thankful for everything that comes our way, we won’t have time to be complaining and murmuring.Count your blessings name them one by one. Count your blessings and see what God has done !

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
