The source of murmuring

I ran across this in some sermon notes from last year, and thought it worthy to share:

The source of much murmuring and complaining is in fact Christian hypocrisy–pretending to be a Christian while holding on to our vision for our lives.

This strikes me as an excellent diagnostic tool of the soul. Because our hearts are deceitful, it is often hard to tell whether we are pursuing our own will or the Lord’s will for us, but the presence of much grumbling may be a clue…

  1. When my heart (and mouth) go to murmuring – I have to shake my soul and thank the Lord for the situation I am murmuring about. Thankfulness is the purest form of faith.
