Come on Sons!! We’ve got more productive things to do than to sit around and complain. Comparing ourselves and competing with others can lead to disappointment, and tempt us to complain. And once we go down that road, it’s hard to get back on track. Taking a moment to step back and count your blessings is a great way to resist feelings of disappointment and regain your sense of appreciation for how good God is to you. So take a deep breath and start counting your way back to a state of contentment…you will see things differently and feel much better.
I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through Him who gives me strength. –Phil 4:11-13 (NIV)
