Complaining

Tonight James Faris preached on Philippians 2:12-18. Verse 14 says "do everything without grumbling and questioning." He talked about how complaining is a daily part of our world's life, if you don't complain something must be wrong with you. James challenged us to try not complaining for a month, and to turn other people's complaints into things they should be grateful for. Overall, it was a really good sermon! :)

Thank you for bringing up a good point about my quote Nathan. I do agree with you. Friends should have some differences, and marriage should be a "single soul dwelling in two bodies," probably the kind of marriage Christ wants!

Goodnight everyone!!!!

Hey Darlin' -
(the Aussies laugh at me when I call someone "darlin'" ;-) )
That sounds like it was a wonderful sermon. I need to work on being content. My dad often asks me if I'm content... and the trueful answer is often not yes. But I do have many things to be grateful for, that is for sure.

I commented on THREE posts below, 'cause I needed to catch up on here!

For that reason I look forward to marriage: if God grant a good marriage, I will have someone whom I can love with all my heart and who shares my soul. Of course, the LORD does this as well, but not quite in the same way.
