Life isn’t always going to serve us what we would like. God permits trials in our lives to help us pray, trust, and be grateful for what we have. 1 Timothy 6:6-8 says, “Godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out, and having food and raiment let us be therewith content.” Contentment is our greatest equation for evangelism. a murmuring, discontent, grumbling, griping and complaining Christian is never going to have a positive influence on others. People will never believe the life changing hope of the gospel until they see those who embrace it living, and acting in ways that are contrary to the world. If we put a check on the complaining we do, we will be affirming that God knows what He is doing in our lives, and He allows these events for our benefit and growth. Learn to be grateful for the life that the Lord has given you, and the opportunity to share with those around you the goodness of our God.
