Most are so used to complaining they don’t give it a 2nd thought … much less call it a sin


I. Complaining is the most common sin


Notice how often the children of Israel complained (vs. 4)


II. Complaining questions God’s goodness


Psalm 37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.


III. Complaining is destructive to our testimony


“Difficulties are opportunities for us to show the world God’s grace in our lives!”


A sweet spirit testifies to the world the power of Christianity… however…


A complaining spirit indicates a lack of victory and spiritual power.


Job 26:4 To whom hast thou uttered words? and whose spirit came from thee?


Only 3 sources for “whose spirit comes out of you…”


1. The Holy Spirit2. An evil spirit3. Your own spiritQuestion: Which is controlling you?


IV. Complaining has disastrous results


Num 14:27 How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.


Only 2 of the original 3,000,000 entered the Promised Land … all because of murmuring (obstinate attitude in Hebrew)


Our Promised Land:R-each people WITH the TruthE-stablish people IN the TruthA-pply the TruthTOdaily livesP-roduce warriors to SHARE Truth


Like the TEAM at Chick fil A last night … Let’s always be ready to turn “lemons” into “lemonade!”
