Why Do we Complain? Insecurity, Inconvenience, Importance, Injustice
1. Insecurity: John 5, Lamentations 3:39, James 5:9.
“The wicked exist in this world either to be converted or that through them the good may exercise patience.” - St. Augustine
What was the life of Christ but a perpetual humiliation?- St. Vincent de Paul
2. Inconvenience (Suffering): Phil 2:14-15
“Whenever anything disagreeable or displeasing happens to you, remember Christ crucified and be silent.”- St. John of the Cross
Many would be willing to have afflictions provided that they not be inconvenienced by them." - St. Francis de Sales
3. Importance (Pride): Ephesians 4:29, Jude 1:16
“We are at Jesus' disposal. If he wants you to be sick in bed, if he wants you to proclaim His work in the street, if he wants you to clean the toilets all day, that's all right, everything is all right. We must say, "I belong to you. You can do whatever you like." And this ..is our strength, and this is the joy of the Lord.” - St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta
“Can anyone receive Jesus into his heart and not die?” - Blessed Imelda Lambertini
4. Injustice - Acts 6:1, 1 Peter 4:9
