Cancel Complaining

A Trappist monk was allowed to say only two words every three years.

After the first three years, he said to the Brother Superior, “Bad bed.”

Three years later he came back to say, “Bad food.”

After three more years of silence the monk said, “No TV.”

Another three years passed. This time the monk appeared with robes and sandals in hand and announced, “I quit.”

The Brother Superior answered, “It’s no wonder. You’ve done nothing but complain since you got here!”

Are you inclined to complain? If so, heed God's word:

”Do everything without complaining and arguing. (Philippians 2:14 NLT)
