Do you complain?

"Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves." John 6:43

Complaining is a Sin!

It is a form of conversation that causes many people a great deal of problems in their life.

It opens the doors for the enemy.

Our words contain power.

When we complain, or grumble or murmur we are using destructive power.

When we complain those words eat away at away the joy of the one who is complaining, or grumbling, or murmuring.

When one complains or grumbles or murmurs it not only affects that person, but it also affects the other people who listen to them.

"Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers." Ephesians 4:29

We have been told that we are not to use foul polluting language.

Murmuring, or complaining pollute our lives.

Murmuring and complaining is just as bad as cursing.

Murmuring and complaining is verbal pollution.

Verbal pollution is poison.

When we murmur and complain we stay in that current situation.

Not only do you poison what you are doing now, but it effects the future.

When we truly are thankful we will not complain, or grumble or murmur.

When we are truly thankful we will have no time to notice what we could complain about.

When we find ourselves in a negative situation, we have to overcome it with good.

Praise and thanksgiving are good, grumbling and complaining are evil.

We need to learn to praise Him in the storm.

We must learn to choose good!

"Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good." Romans 12:21

We must learn to fill our thoughts with good things.

We must learn to fill our conservation with good things.

If we do not fill our thoughts and conservation with good thoughts they will be filled with evil thoughts.

"Do all things without murmurings and disputings." Philippians 2:14
