I’m a whiner. I like to complain that I don’t have things that I want. Everyone is a whiner at some point. You feel entitled to something that another person has. You feel that pang of, “If only I had enough money, than I could get . . . .”
Here is something that is absolutely amazing, though. God has given us everything we could ever need! Like a wise parent, God separates our wants from our needs, and graciously fills the “needs cup” up to overflowing. How has he done that? He’s given us Christ!
“He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8.32)
So, join me in asking God for help in quitting our whining process, because we have everything we truly need.
