I don’t think anyone likes to hear people complain, but we sure do enjoy being the complainer. No one wants someone to constantly be challenging everything they do or say, but we sure do enjoy giving our “opinion.” That is why these verses present quite the challenge. There is something to be said about someone who is ready to serve and do it with joy, the problem becomes WHO are you serving?
No matter what you are doing, do all things unto the Lord and not to men and you will find a deep joy that is void of any complaint or opinion. But if you find yourself complaining and disputing, ask yourself, who am I serving?
