Blessings of the Day: Do all things without complaining and disputing. —Philippians 2:14
How can we learn to develop a noncomplaining, positive attitude that will please the Lord?
• By disciplining our thoughts (Rom. 12:2). We need to meditate on Scripture and remember our blessings.
• By confessing our critical spirit and committing ourselves to obedience each time we fail (1 John 1:9).
• By enlisting God’s help and the help of others. The Spirit will empower us as we depend on Him (John 14:26).
Because God helps us, doing all things without complaining is not an impossible challenge. —Anne Cetas
The Lord is my helper.
