Have you ever worked around people or been acquainted with people at church who constantly complain? I mean their DNA spells COMPLAINER!!! They complain about the receptionist’s attitude or the pastor’s sermons or the loudness of the drums during worship service. Complain, complain, complain…. Oh, you have met a few people like this!
Life has challenges. Life has bends in the road. Churches have challenges, but having someone constantly point out ALL the negatives can be clearly exhausting.
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7
Thankfulness goes a long way toward developing a POSITIVE attitude. No one looks forward to hanging out with those who have negative attitudes and are constantly complaining about everything. An attitude of thankfulness reflects joy in our lives and faith in the One who is in control.
