>The Fundamental Choice


I can’t remember where I heard it, but I like it:

Every situation, every circumstance gives you fundamentally two choices:

whine or worship.

I am prone to whine/complain/grumble, though I know what the Word says about such expressions of lack-of-faith.

Here’s a sharper statement (using the word “murmuring” instead of whine/complain/grumble) from a couple centuries ago):

“Murmuring is no better than mutiny in the heart; it is a rising up against God. When the sea is rough and unquiet, it casts forth nothing but foam: when the heart is discontented, it casts forth the foam of anger, impatience, and sometimes little better than blasphemy. Murmuring is nothing else but the scum which boils off from a discontented heart.” Thomas Watson

Why am I prone to “murmur” and “complain”? Am I the only one?
