Top Ten Tuesday: W is for Whiny

Top Ten Tuesday

If there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s complaining.

  • I’m tired of sitting.
  • The lesson is boring.
  • The WiFi is inconsistent.
  • Gas is expensive.
  • Traffic is slow.
  • I’m hungry.

Yep, I could whine your ears off.  The following ten verses are intended for me.

Ten Verses for When You Feel Whiny

1. Philippians 2:14-16

Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain.

2. 1 Peter 4:9

Show hospitality to one another without grumbling.

3. I Thessalonians 5:17-18

Pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

I Thessalonians 5:18

and among the inhabitants of the earth;
and none can stay his hand
or say to him, “What have you done?”

    saying, ‘He will answer none of man’s words’?

or who has been his counselor?”
