  •  When I was a young child I spent many days with my grandparents, Papa and Mother. Their house was right next door to Beard’s country store in Buffalo.

    One morning, Mother sent me to the store to get her a wet mop (as opposed to a dust mop). I skipped across the drive and bounded into the store. The owner was busy with customers and didn’t really pay any attention to me because I was in there so often.

  •  The Apostle Paul advised the Philippians: “Do everything without complaining” (2:14).

    Complaining kills joy and makes you unhappy. No one likes to be around a complainer.

    The problem with complaining is that once you start it is hard to stop. It can easily become a habit and you find something to complain about all the time.

    Society encourages us to complain. Look at the headlines in your newspaper or listen to the news on TV. There is bad news everywhere.
