Complaining

Pastor Wurmbrand

Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, the founder of The Voice of the Martyrs, told the following story:

“Two men were walking home together in bad weather. They had a long way to go. The blizzard was fierce, blowing snow and sleet in their faces and chilling them to the bone.

“One man muttered the whole way, “It is terrible! I can’t stand it anymore! Nobody could imagine anything worse than this!”

“The other man replied, “I can. Just imagine walking in such weather with someone who is complaining the entire time.”

Pastor Wurmbrand then compared the complaining man in the story with persecuted Christians who talk about how Christ suffered to save us instead of talking about their own struggles. “Their speech is not about the wounds they have, but about Christ,” Pastor Wurmbrand said.

To remind yourself to not complain, try making a wristband.
