No one likes to be with a person who complains. But often people think about things they don’t have. Or they think that no one understands their problems. Then they feel sorry for themselves and complain to other people.
While the Israelites were wandering in the wilderness, they often complained. In verse 5b of our Bible Reading the Israelites said to Moses, “Why did you bring us out of Egypt? We will die here in the desert! There is no bread and no water! And we hate this terrible food!”
God was so angry with the Israelites that He sent poisonous snakes. The snakes bit people, and many of them died. God was taking care of the Israelites, so they had no reason to complain.
Paul reminds us in Philippians 2:14 to “do everything without complaining or arguing.” Don’t be a complainer today. Instead, thank God for all He has done for you.
