Beef stew is the favorite meal of the carnal Christian. Why? Because they always seem to have a “beef.” And to add insult to injury they also find something worth “stewing” over.
Proverbs 22:10 Drive out the mocker, and out goes strife; quarrels and insults are ended.
People always find what they are looking for. That is why it is the SAME people who continually complain, backbite, gossip and find fault. They simply have a negative attitude. It is a heart condition. Pastor Steve.
Along these lines there is the story of two boys who received gifts for Christmas. The first lad received absolutely EVERYTHING he wanted. But he gripped, whined and complained because the items were not the upgrades and brands that he asked for. The second chap opened a door and beheld his Christmas present. It was a room full of horse manure. His reaction? He was heard to exclaim: “Praise God, with all of this horse dung there has to be a pony around here some where.” It is all about the heart and our attitude. You think about that. Pastor Steve
