Do you have those days when everything your mom and brother do simply drive you crazy? Maybe as hard as you try, your family continually irritates you. As a result, you’re constantly in a bad mood.
Do everything without complaining and arguing, – Philippians 2:14 (NLT)
Today’s Bible verse is a challenge for those days when everyone is making us mad. It’s for those days when everything your mom asks you to do feels like too much. And especially for those times when you just want to be left alone.
Yes, we have days when we just are struggling, but even on those bad days, it’s up to us to try to practice self-control when dealing with others. You can push yourself to have a good attitude even if the people who live at your house make you mad. There are times when even when you want to complain about a chore or argue with your brother that you can say no.
And while that isn’t always easy, it’s what we’re challenged to do. So today, determine to try to set aside arguing and complaining. Decide that you’ll drop the small things and try to have a good attitude as you go through life today.
