Five Things Monday?

I know it's Monday and many of us are tempted to give in to those post-weekend blues--let the whining begin!  But before you get all excited about complaining (heh, heh) here's a little list of five things I noticed about griping and God's reaction to our whining.  Just a little food for thought for the next time you're in the mood to fuss about something.

Five Things From the Bible About Complainers

1. Fire fell on them  Numbers 11:1

2. A plague fell on them.  Num. 11:33

3. God heard Moses' complaints about the people's whining and gave them so much of what they asked for that got sick of it--literally.  Num. 11:11-21

4.  Marion, Moses' sister, wound up a leper.

5. Gentle words bring life and health.  Griping leads to discouragement.  Proverbs 15:4 NLB

So hey, have a happy Monday and don't forget to rejoice in the Lord today!
