Home > Christian Living, Gospel, Quotes > Complaining


I recently finished Joe Thorn’s helpful little book, Note to Self.  Would recommend you read it.  A lot of good stuff in his book, but in particular I was reminded of chapter 35 (Stop Complaining) this past week as our family vacation had some minor inconveniences.

You complain because you misunderstand (or just miss altogether) the grace you have received and the purposes of God in your life.  You misunderstand the grace you have received by not recognizing it and receiving it with gratitude.  Life, breath, and all of God’s provisions for your life are acts of his kindness and are truly wonderful, and yet they all seem to disappear when the small inconveniences of life appear.
