Do you complain? Do you complain to people about your problems? Do you complain about people? Do you gossip about others? Do you post your complaints on Facebook? Yesterday I posted about airing your dirty laundry on Facebook. I see it to often from people, some even complain about other people. It is not a good Christian testimony. I don’t know about you, but when a person starts complaining about someone or gossiping about someone, my discernment tells me to walk away from such junk.

Months ago my friend Sonja Haldeman sent me this devotional from Jesus Calling, it really preached to me on complaining, I pray it preaches to you: anger

You have been on a long, uphill journey, and your energy is almost spent. Though you have faltered at times, you have not let go of My hand. I am pleased with your desire to stay close to Me. There is one thing, however, that displeases Me: your tendency to complain. You may talk to Me as much as you like about the difficulty of the path we are following. I understand better than anyone else the stresses and strains that have afflicted you. You can ventilate safely to Me, because talking with Me tempers your thoughts and helps you see things from My perspective.
Complaining to others is another matter altogether. It opens the door to deadly sins such as self-pity and rage. Whenever you are tempted to grumble, come to Me and talk it out. As you open up to Me, I will put My thoughts in your mind and My song in your heart.
“I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.”
—Jeremiah 31:25
Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe.
—Philippians 2:14–15
