With Prayer and Thanksgiving
“Be anxious for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” Philippians 4:6
Sometimes we complain when we shouldn’t. I remember an occasion when I was driving across the country with a gentleman. At the time, all of our children were in private schools, and Joyce and I were “dying of mal-tuition.” I began complaining a little bit to the man about the great cost of sending a son to college. He looked at me and said, “I’d give anything in the world if my son would go to college.” I thought, “Oh, what an ungrateful spirit I have!”
Do you ever complain about dirty dishes? There are lots of folks in Third World countries that would like to have some dirty dishes. We are to be thankful in all things.
Rejoice in God’s blessings in your life. Nip that temptation in the bud to complain and grumble about your life today.

Children are truly a blessing from God. Unfortunately, they don’t come with a set of instructions. There are many places we can look to for advice on parenting, but none better than the Word of God. Jesus is the greatest home builder, and Satan is the greatest home wrecker. We need to follow God’s instructions and build our homes His way.
