Without Complaining

Do everything without complaining and arguing so that you may become pure and blameless children of God, without fault, in a wicked and depraved generation in which you will shine like stars in the universe. Philippians 2:14-15

The memory part of last week’s verse was not so difficult on this one, but the application was killer! Isn’t it for all of us? EVERY thing without complaining? Yikes!

At the beginning of the week Anne Hope continually said, “I just can’t learn it mom. It’s too hard.” Interestingly, I figured out as the week went on that she was more concerned that by saying it (which she could very easily) she was promising to live up to it all the time. We had a little chat about that. Each of us admits to being a work in progress...

  2. That IS a hard one! I can totally see the child-logic of not wanting to recite it!
