Complaining Is Evil

Paul Luckett | - Complaining Is Evil

Complaining is evil. It is thought and speech in service to the evil one.

Complaining weakens the hearer (I can even weaken myself from my own internal dialogue)

directing attention and energy

away from God

and to my dissatisfaction or displeasure.

Complaining is contempt for the reality I’m faced with while cowering from the responsibility to make it better.

Complaining shirks that responsibility and shifts it to another, often in the form of blame.

Complaining denies my duty to glorify God (by keeping Him central, maintaining attention on His goodness) and abandons my responsibility to represent the goodness of His kingdom order in every situation that I face.

“Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as [it is] in heaven.”
—Matthew 6:10, Luke 11:2

Complaining is cowardice.

And, no coward will be counted among the children of God.

“But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
—Revelation 21:8

Believe Jesus. Repent and be saved.
