Life is not always “as much fun as a vacation.”  Perseverance, endurance, patience, and self-control are needed.  We are not yet self-disciplined until we can discipline our thinking and speech.  Our passing comments demonstrate either our frustration or our faith.  Father, I desire to serve You without complaint so that my attitude may be right and my witness may be clear.  Forgive me for the times my words betrayed this desire. Amen!

 “Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life.” Philippians 2:14-16
