Without Complaining #301

14  Do all things without complaining and disputing, 15  that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, 16  holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain. (Philippians 2:14-16)

The way a Christian deals with disputes and conflicts stands in sharp contrast to the crooked and perverse generation in which he or she lives. Christians endeavor to live without complaining or grumbling, and without the disputing or arguing that usually arises over such complaints. Make it your goal today not to grumble and argue but instead, to resolve every dispute that may occur at home, at work or at school. By doing so you are holding fast the word of life and shining as a light in the world.
