"Grumbling begets grumbling. When we complain we are only practicing for our next complaint. Today in prayer, confess any constant grumbling in your own life and seek to find peace in Jesus Christ." - Peter Kennedy, Daily Devotional Email, August 31, 2010.
Today's devotional email hit home pretty squarely. I know that I should not complain, but I'm so very prone to it. The above quote from this morning's devotional was great. I pray that I would not be practicing for my next complaint as I go into the day, being content and seeking to serve in my new job.
