Do all things without murmurings and disputings. That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; (Phil 2:14-15)
Now what would you think if you saw two people fighting and yelling? What would your first thoguht be? Or maybe they are just bickering. My first thought would be " Oh they are very Christ-like aren't they?" I have been guilty of this just here recently. Not fighting, but bickering with my brother. We did not look very Christ-like that day. Vs. 15 says that we are to be blameless, and vs 14 says to do ALL things without murmurings and disputings. We are to be a light to the world, even if we are in the church and start to bicker, we are to still be the light in the church.
How many of us when we are told to do something actually do it without saying "Do I have too?" or "Why can't this person do it?". I know that I am guilty of this thing as well. This when used alot it becomes a daily routine and you can do nothing but murmur and complain. This can go away with much prayer and practice, but you have to want to be willing to change it.
I told my mom while I was writing this that I had never been bit so hard! I have found myself SO guilty of these. I hope that it helps you like it helped me!
