Complaining · Conviction · Love · Selfishness · Serving

convicted…

I found myself convicted today… for complaining…
a mild complaint… but a complaint nonetheless….

The complaint centered on something that should only bring joy…

Self-centeredness… the root of complaint…

As I write… I’m reminded for what I have been set free…

For you were called to freedom, brothers.
Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh,
but through love serve one another.
Galatians 5:13 ESV
I suppose all complaints… or most to be sure… are rooted in selfishness…
His love… frees us to serve others… in love…
therefore should free us from complaining…
Do everything without complaining or arguing.
Philippians 2:14
Grateful to be set straight…
Grateful for the Holy Spirit who convicts…
Grateful for the freedom to serve… in love…
Have you complained today…? 
Perhaps it’s time to examine its root…
