Photobucket Whine or Shine!

“Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be a blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I (Paul) will have reason to glory because I (Paul) did not run in vain nor toil in vain.” Phil 2:14-16

I call the above verses my “whine or shine” verses. Our reactions to responsibilities, circumstances, crises will determine how we are perceived in the world. Do we whine? Do we grumble and dispute? If so, we’ll appear like the rest of our generation.

Do we want to shine in the midst of our generation? Then we simply must decide not to whine. We will begin to shine in our generation as we walk out Paul’s command. We will draw men to HIM because we will stand out…we will reflect His glory.

Join me this week in making a stand to shine and not whine!
